Out: M Shea Salias (left fibula fracture)
Probable: D Jordan Harvey (left groin strain), M Roger Torres (right ankle sprain), F Alejandro Moreno (right knee contusion), F Danny Mwanga (right ankle sprain)

SEPTA announced last night that it is adding service for fans coming to PPL Park tonight from Delaware. You'll see the additional trains in the timetable below the chat console.

Other news items today: the Union signed 29-year-old Colombian defender Juan Diego González Alzate, and Sebastien Le Toux got his United States green card

A little more about Alzate: his most recent club was Colombian side Deportivo Pereira. That is not one of the country's better clubs, but he has spent substantial time at top sides Independiente Medellin and Once Caldas. Pereira also played one season at San Lorenzo in Argentina and one season at Santos Laguna in Mexico.

I'll be hosting a chat from the press box during the game. I hope you'll join me.
