HOW ACQUIRED: Via loan from Tijuana on December 23, 2018.
A Liga MX veteran, Garza makes his way to Atlanta after dealing with some injuries over the past couple of seasons. The left back had previously been a part of the US national team pool and should bring his strong defensive skills to Atlanta's backline.
INTERNATIONAL: Garza has been capped for the United States Men’s National Team nine times, most recently during the 2015 Gold Cup during a 1-0 win in group stage against Haiti.
OUTSIDE MLS: He signed with Tijuana of Liga MX on Dec. 21, 2011 and quickly became a key member of the Xolos lineup. Garza has combined to make 84 career appearances for Tijuana, including six appearances in CONCACAF Champions League and four appearances in Copa Libertadores.
