The Los Angeles Galaxy's defense just got a little deeper.
Los Angeles picked up former U.S. U-20 national team defender Kyle Davies, who was placed on waivers by FC Dallas on May 5. The 22-year-old Davies will provide cover at centerback for Omar Gonzalez and A.J. DeLaGarza, and helps a defense that recently lost Leonardo to a season-ending injury.
Davies is no stranger to injuries, however. He missed a chunk of the 2010 season for FC Dallas with a fractured arm, and was sidelined for much of the beginning of this year.
