The New England Revolution announced on Friday the signing of 18 year oldNigerian midmidfielder, Michael Augustine. The midfielder played with Nigerias FCT Abuja team after startying his career with their academy team in 2008. Augustine will hold one of 8 international roster spots once the team recieves a reciept of his International Transfer Certificate. Augustine has already joined the team who is in Georgia for their preseason training sessions.
At the very least, the Sox will have to finish the homestand without Hanley Ramirez. That's if they're lucky. If he's lost to them for any extended period, the season could be lost, too.
