Minnesota United FC will part ways with designated player Angelo Rodriguez, after the forward scored nine goals with three assists in 39 games with the team over the past two seasons.
The team exercised a buyout of the guaranteed contract for the 30-year-old native of Columbia. Earlier this offseason, the team also traded its other designated player, Darwin Quintero, who is now with the Houston Dynamo.
The Loons went 15-11-8 (53 points) in 2019 and advanced to the Western Conference playoffs as a No. 4 seed, losing 2-1 in the first round to the No. 5 seed Los Angeles Galaxy.
The team is now undergoing significant changes, adding goalkeeper Tyler Miller in a trade with Los Angeles FC earlier this month. They also are rumored to be pursuing Boca Juniors midfielder Emanuel Reynoso and Paraguay forward Luis Amarilla, according to mlssoccer.com.
