HOW ACQUIRED: Via loan from Tijuana on December 23, 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 should be a big piece of Atlanta's backline in 2018.
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.
