Jared Stroud, Austin FC

With the serious injury to Gaston Gonzalez before he even arrived to the United States, Orlando needs more dynamism on the wing from somewhere. The intra-league market for attackers, especially creators, isn't particularly rich, but Austin's Jared Stroud is an available piece who could provide a spark.

The Colgate product showed out in moments last season, but has been completely relegated from the Austin squad. Best case scenario, Stroud is a low-cost, low-risk addition who can provide energy, verticality and some spark opposite Facundo Torres or off the bench. Worst case scenario he sits on the bench and maybe plays for OCB.

This isn't the biggest move ever considered, but it could add vital depth in a position of need for Orlando City.
