TRANSFER STATUS: Trade
The reset was made on an official friday afternoon.
"We are pleased to welcome Clint Irwin back to Colorado," said Rapids EVP and Chief Executive Padreig Smith's statement. "He is a talented goalie who knows well about this team and the city. I know that our fans will look forward to seeing him back from Dick's Sports Park to the places we are."
Clint Irwin returns to Colorado Rapids.
Sources told MLSsoccer.com on Friday that Rapids will send a second round of 2019 MLS SuperDraft Toronto FC in exchange for a veteran goalie. The Rapids originally won the choice of FC Dallas trading, which brought Kellyn Acosta to Colorado this summer.
After one season in the Canadian Football League and one of the USLs, Irwin joined Rapids before the 2013 season. The 29-year-old won the start of the job straight away, making 32 regular season appearances to help Colorado's surprise playoff spot.
In Colorado, he started the 87 regular season in three years before Toronto was marketed before the 2016 season. In the first season, he was in the first season of BMO Field, starting 19 regular season races and all six races, including the TFC heart beat at the Seattle MLS Cup. He started only 13 league games in 2017 and 2018, when Alex Bono became the TFC starter.
Irwin is set to duplicate Tim Howard Colorado, who earlier sold this former No. 2 Zac MacMathu Vancouver. On Friday, Raid gained goalkeeper Andre Rawls from New York City FC's first re-entry draft. He will probably start the year as Club No. 3
