His brother Michael is still without a team, but was in Chiapas this week hanging out with Gabe.
Michael Orozco's Puebla lost to Santos Laguna on penalties in the Copa MX (think Mexico's US Open Cup) final. It would have been their fifth Copa MX title.

He did leave the match and was seen on th bench wrapping ice on his left calf. It's unknown if he'll be available to play in the season finale against Santos Laguna.

This coming weekend, Joe and the Steel Spennies face off against Leek Town. Mmm... leeks...
