HOW ACQUIRED: Signed as a Homegrown Player on Jan. 23, 2019.

With athleticism and savvy decision-making, Pines showed flashes of his immense potential in his first professional season before being sidelined due to a knee injury and continued his upward trajectory in 2020 with 15 starts in 16 appearances, including his first three MLS goals. 

INTERNATIONAL: Was called into Jason Kreis' 26-player roster for the US U-23 national team last September.

In 39 starts, Pines recorded 21 clean sheets and averaged 0.77 goals per game. His junior season in 2018 was his most fruitful as a goalscorer, scoring two goals in 22 appearances. He was nominated to the 2018 College Cup All-tournament team on the way to leading Maryland to an NCAA Championship; the fourth College Cup in the program’s history. The team recorded five clean sheets in the final five games including the NCAA Championship match against the University of Akron. Pines played in 17 games alongside current Black-and-Red defender Chris Odoi-Atsem as both players were teammates on the 2016 Maryland Soccer team.
