Orlando City SC Adds 2019 MLS SuperDraft Fourth Round Pick

Orlando City SC has traded midfielder Tony Rocha to New York City FC in exchange for a 2019 MLS SuperDraft fourth round pick. Following the 2018 MLS season, Rocha’s option was not exercised; however, City retains the player’s rights through the end of the calendar year.
