What can anybody tell us about him? I googled him and Wiki had no relevant info and his name was already removed from RSL's roster on their web page.

I know he's 23 and got locked up for a DUI last October...........

"The relentless Real Salt Lake offseason continued Thursday. And the latest name to be headed out of town: Sebastian Velasquez. The 23-year-old midfielder has been traded to New York City FC in exchange for allocation money, RSL technical director Craig Waibel told the Tribune. While the deal hasn’t officially been announced, it’s done and is expected to be announced sometime Friday.
Per league and club policy, the amount of allocation money exchanged will be not disclosed."

I wonder if we took some of the transfer fee for Salgado and turned around and sent it to RSL for Velasquez?

He'll probably be used mainly as an impact sub. Maybe could develop into starter material in a couple years.

He's got talent but battled injuries last year. It's a great sign and we gave up next to nothing to get him. Great depth signing and could develop into a starter.

I always look for comments from fans of the team who lost the player to see how they react - the more disappointed they are, the better the player is.

It seems like RSL fans are split on this - one half saying he has insane potential and could be a star, the other half saying he is immature and loses the ball too much

He's definitely a known name in MLS, though

You can't really go wrong with how little we gave up to get him. 50k in allocation money is nothing.

Good player with potential. He might have been a more regular player for Salt Lake this next season with Grabavoy gone but apparently thats not happening. Had some real shining moments in 2012 in his debut year, in his first game as a starter actually:

Start at the 5:00 minute

and more recently

Well, he'll have much better cab access here. That's what I love about Kreis. Not just a quality trainer, but a real leader of men.

(Hear that dripping sound? That's what sarcasm and snark sound like rolling out of my keyboard.)
