Toronto FC Picks Up Goalkeeper, Cuts Another; Signs Saric

Major League Soccer's Toronto FC announced Friday they claimed goalkeeper Jon Conway off waivers from Chivas USA, waived goalkeeper Brian Edwards and signed midfielder Martin Saric.

Conway, in his 11th MLS season, was a third round 2000 MLS SuperDraft pick by the San Jose Earthquakes and joined Chivas in September 2009 after playing four seasons with the New York Red Bulls.

In 2008 with the Red Bulls, he had career highs in starts (28), saves (98) and minutes played (2,520) and ended the season with seven shutouts and a 1.50 goals against average.

With Chivas in 2009, he played in one game -- a 2-0 loss to Chivas de Guadalajara in an exhibition game September 23 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA.

Edwards was Toronto's second round pick in the 2008 SuperDraft and started all nine games he took part in, finishing with a 3-4-2 record.

Saric, a native of Argentina, spent much of the preseason with Toronto after playing last season in Slovenia with NK Celje.
