Oscar Sorto departs Orange County SC

Defender leaves club by mutual consent.

Orange County SC announced this week that they have parted ways with defender Oscar Sorto and that the decision was “mutually agreed.”

Sorto, 23, departs after playing in the first seven games for Orange County SC this season. The right back was one of the few holdovers from last season’s roster, when he played 30 games for OCSC across all competitions.

The move depletes Orange County’s depth in defense somewhat, alongside center back Alex Crognale being recalled from his loan by Columbus Crew SC (Crognale played for Columbus last weekend and was on the bench for Wednesday’s game — it’s unclear if or when he will return to Orange County). But with the team playing well overall right now and it being announced as a mutual decision, these things happen.

No word on what’s next for Sorto, who began his professional career as a Homegrown signing by the LA Galaxy. Best of luck to him moving forward.
