Option declined following 2019 season.

Standing just 5-foot-2, Plata may be one of the shortest players in MLS, but the Ecuadorian makes a big impact on the field. His quickness, dribbling skill and finishing ability can terrorize opposing defenses.

INTERNATIONAL: Plata has five career caps with Ecuador’s senior national team, making his international debut in 2011 at Toronto FC’s BMO Field and scoring both of his international goals in a 5-1 friendly win against El Salvador in October 2014.

OUTSIDE MLS: Plata began his career in his native Ecuador, turning pro with LDU Quito in 2010. He made seven appearances for the club before going on loan to Toronto FC in 2011. After being bought outright by TFC in 2012, Plata headed back to Quito for a quick loan stint in the second half of that year, scoring one goal in 13 appearances before returning to MLS with RSL.
