CARSON, Calif. – Ariel Lassiter, the LA Galaxy II’s leading scorer in 2015, was announced on Saturday as the latest player from Los Dos to sign with the LA Galaxy ahead of the 2016 Major League Soccer season.
Lassiter joins goalkeeper Clement Diop and defenders Dave Romney and Daniel Steres in signing with the Galaxy’s MLS side after competing with the Galaxy II in 2015.

The son of former MLS legend Roy Lassiter, the 21-year-old has competed internationally for the Costa Rica U23 National Team.
