Raul Ruidiaz, Seattle Sounders

2017-18 Stats: 18 G, 2 A; 0.66 G+A/90


Ruidiaz was an elite center forward in Liga MX, dominating for Monarchs Morelia. His two seasons in Mexico were incredibly prolific with almost 40 goals in just under 70 games. His per 90 numbers are similar to Kara, even if they're rather different players.

Ruidiaz is the best striker in the league. For Seattle, he's scored 50 goals in 79 games, leading the line for the most consistently elite team in the league. If Kara is even close to Ruidiaz, Orlando will be overjoyed.
