HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from Atlanta on Dec. 11, 2018.
One of three Atlanta United players to be a 2017 MLS All-Star, Garza had a quality first season in MLS. He is an outside back eager to get forward, which is a great fit for the style of play Tata Martino wants to employ. He continued that strong play in 2018, though he was hampered by injury. He returned in time to be a key cog in the Five Stripes' run to MLS Cup.
INTERNATIONAL: Garza has been capped for the United States Men’s National Team ten times, most recently in January 2017.
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.
NOTES: 2018 MLS Cup champion...2017 MLS All-Star
