Andy Najar esta recuperando y listo para firmar con el DC United tras superar pruebas medicas y físicas (Diez): So apparently Andy has figured out his injury problems and may be coming aboard shortly if this is something I read right.

Anthem singer DC Washington ready to take field at Nats home reopener (WTOP): Hey D.C. United if you want to make a fan return special, I have a suggestion.
