HOW ACQUIRED: Trade from FC Dallas on Dec. 9, 2018. Signed to a new three-year contract through 2021, with an option year for 2022.
A well-rounded forward who can harry (and bait) defenders relentlessly, Urruti worked his way into a full-time starting role with FC Dallas after starting just 12 games in each of his final two years with the Portland Timbers. Over the past three years he was a key figure in FCD's attack and will look to be a key cog for the Impact in 2019. He originally came to MLS in 2013 as a high-profile signing by Toronto FC from Newell’s Old Boys of Argentina.
OUTSIDE MLS: Came up through the youth system at storied Argentine club Newell's Old Boys and debuted for the senior team in 2011, later helping the club reach the semifinals of the 2013 Copa Libertadores.
