Colorado Rapids sign midfielder Jaime Castrillon

Soon his master plan will come into effect, bwahaha

It's official, after a couple weeks of anticipation the Colorado Rapids announced on twitter that they have made good on their negotiations and signed midfielder Jaime Castrillon to the squad. The Columbian midfielder had flown into Colorado recently in order to continue negotiations that were originally stalled by the MLS drafts. He is a fairly decorated Columbian international who will immediately add attacking flair to the Rapids midfield and might be the largest profile signing the club has seen in a long time.

This is the third midfielder addition to the squad this offseason after selecting Tony Cascio and Kohei Yamada in the MLS SuperDraft and Supplemental Draft. All three are good offense based players, which should add a lot of strength to a midfield that had plenty of defensive mettle under Gary Smith but not much else. Castrillon is also the first pure attacking central midfielder on the club in a very long time. (No, Mehdi Ballouchy doesn't count.)

Welcome to the club, Jamie. Here's to a long and illustrious career in the burgundy and blue!
