LA Galaxy trade Greg Cochrane for a conditional 2016 SuperDraft Pick

CARSON, Calif. -- The LA Galaxy dealt defender Greg Cochrane to the Chicago Fire on Monday in exchange for a conditional draft pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. 

Cochrane made just a single start for the Galaxy this preseason (during their 2-1 victory over F.C. Shirak) after making a total of 15 showings in all competitions during 2013 campaign. Despite an injury to regular left back Todd Dunivant, Cochrane had fallen behind expected signing James Riley in the depth chart. 

The deal to trade Cochrane could bode well for veteran trialist Dan Gargan who has been with the club throughout the preseason. LA released defender Brian Gaul last week.
