Breakers On the Move: Team Trades Defender Casey Short for No. 11 Draft Selection

Short will join a Red Stars team that finished six points out of the playoffs in 2013 - Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

The Breakers' off-season continued on Tuesday, when the team sent defender Casey Short to Chicago in exchange for the No. 11 pick in the 2014 NWSL draft

On Tuesday, the Breakers continued to add draft-pick depth, dealing defender Casey Short to Chicago in exchange for the 11th overall pick in the NWSL College draft. The Red Stars also received a 2015 third-round pick, a selection the Breakers acquired from Seattle in exchange for midfielder Moriah Nogueira.

Short, who missed the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL, served as the Breakers first-round draft selection (No. 5 overall) last season. The Naperville, Ill. native and Florida State graduate originated as a forward and midfielder, making the switch to left back during a 23-game senior campaign. Short now plays forward for the U-23 USWNT.

After completing their third trade in less than two weeks, the Breakers' hold significant power in the NWSL draft, claiming the Nos. 7, 11, 18, 20 and 28 overall selections.
