The first player ever to be a member of an intra-league loan for MLS is returning to his original club. Tony Cascio, who was shipped out to the Houston Dynamo on loan prior to the start of the 2014 MLS season, will be a Colorado Rapids player once again barring any more moves involving the young midfielder.
During his time in Houston, Cascio had a bit of intrigue before suffering an ACL injury that essentially wiped the season out for him. He had no points, but some bright appearances, in his five matches with the Dynamo and was even getting the nod as a starter from coach Dominic Kinnear, perhaps a good sign for a Rapids team that needs an influx of players ready to get onto the field in 2015.
This is no guarantee that Cascio is actually going to see the field in 2015, of course. The Rapids could very easily trade him this off-season despite taking his contract option.
With Cascio back in Colorado, the Rapids will lose the international slot that they took from Houston for the season in exchange.
