Chivas USA acquired midfielder Nathan Sturgis from the Colorado Rapids in exchange for midfielder Carlos Alvarez. 

Sturgis returns to Los Angeles, where he made his Major League Soccer debut in 2006 after being selected 12th overall by the LA Galaxy in that year’s SuperDraft. Since then, the Clemson University product has registered 111 appearances and tallied five goals and four assists after stints with six different MLS clubs (Colorado Rapids, 2013-’14; Houston Dynamo, 2012; Toronto FC, 2011; Seattle Sounders FC, 2009-’10; Real Salt Lake, 2007-’08; LA Galaxy, 2006-’07).

As a member of the Sounders, the St. Augustine, Fla. native helped the Emerald City club conquer back-to-back U.S. Open Cup titles beginning in 2009. Followed by brief stints with Toronto FC, where they won the Canadian Championship, and the Houston Dynamo, Sturgis joined the Rapids during the 2012 off-season, becoming an instrumental part in the team’s run to the 2013 MLS Playoffs with 25 games played and four goals. 

At the international level, Sturgis emerged from the U.S. Youth Program, where he played at the U-17 and U-20 levels. With the U-20 National Team, the midfielder made 40 appearances and participated in two FIFA U-20 World Cups in Canada and the Netherlands.
