Seattle's Scott suspended by MLS Disciplinary Committee

A Seattle Sounders player is once again in the crosshairs of the MLS Disciplinary Committee.

On Friday it was Sounders right back Zach Scott who was suspended and fined an undisclosed amount for "endangering the safety of FC Dallas midfielder Fabian Castillo" on a tackle that occurred in the 75th minute of Seattle's 2-0 midweek victory at FC Dallas on May 9. Scott received a yellow card on the play (video embedded below).

The defender will not be available to manager Sigi Schmid when the Sounders welcome Western Conference leaders Real Salt Lake on Saturday night (10 pm ET, MLS LIVE).

Scott joins three other Sounders players who have been sanctioned by the Disciplinary Committee thus far in 2012: Alvaro Fernandez (embellishment), Eddie Johnson (inappopriate gesture) and Leo Gonzalez (endangering safety of an opponent).

Fines are collected by MLS and donated to the charitable partners of MLS W.O.R.K.S. and the MLS Players Union.
