HOW ACQUIRED: Transferred from Uniautonoma on May 13, 2015.
A tall, athletic younger striker, Manotas broke out for the Dynamo at the end of 2016 with six goals in Houston's final eight games. Despite fiercer competition for a starting spot in 2017, he managed to get himself into the starting lineup on 24 occasions. He'll hope to continue this upward trajectory this season, his fourth with Houston.
OUTSIDE MLS: Debuted with his hometown Uniautonoma before transferring to MLS.
INTERNATIONAL: Played in qualifying for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup with Colombia.
