While the Sounders are away from their fans — and local media — they are providing updates on their training at Casa Grande, Ariz.
Here’s today’s report:
Thirty-four Sounders FC players arrived at Grande Sports World early Sunday afternoon for the two-week preseason training session. Midfielder Kerry Baptiste met the team in Arizona. Baptiste, an invitee, is a 29-year-old striker who most recently played for Joe Public in Trinidad & Tobago.
Forward Nate Jaqua stayed in Seattle to rehab his injury. Jaqua will go through one-on-one training for the next two weeks with a member of the Sounders FC
