James Ansu Rogers Waived by Sporting Kansas City

The forward was the only Sporting KC player not to see first-team action in 2015.

USA TODAY Sports-Gary Rohman

Sporting Kansas City has waived forward James Ansu Rogers, the club announced Monday afternoon. He never made any appearances on the pitch, but was included in the game day roster four times.

Ansu Rogers was the third round pick by Sporting Kansas City and signed by the club on February 25. He appeared in six preseason games, scoring one goal and an assist.

Speculation

Ansu Rogers was deep depth at the forward position and it's no secret that Sporting KC has been searching for more depth on the left wing.

In a speculative sense, this move could be seen as making room for a new player when the transfer window opens on July 8. This move gives Sporting KC 25 players on their active roster, which leaves three open slots under the new rules that were negotiated in the Collective Bargaining Agreement, down from 30 roster spots previously.
