2015 Union Player Review: Warren Creavalle/Raymond Lee

New, 2 comments

Creavalle started two games and played in five after being traded to the Union in August, while Lee only played in one game before being waived.

For these two Union players, Warren Creavalle and Raymond Lee, the moments ranged from the mundane to the catastrophic. Between the two of them they logged very little time on a Union pitch and only one of them made a memorable conclusion. For that player, I think he would like to have that one back.

2015 Summary

Warren Creavalle played for Toronto FC for the majority of the 2015 season before being traded to the Union in August for a second round pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. Creavalle featured in five games for Jim Curtin's side, starting two of them. In Toronto, he started in eight of the 14 games he played in. Crevasse was mainly used as a substitute, with the most minutes he played outside of the two starts being 11 minutes.

His one bright spot during the brief time he has spent in Philadelphia was the assist he recorded (start at 1:30) on the Union's goal against the New England Revolution in the 1-1 tie on September 26 when he set up Fernando Aristeguieta. Besides this moment, there weren't too many times when Creavalle was involved (at all), so his impact will be determined by what happens when he has a full season to prove himself under Curtin.

For Lee, the 71st pick of the SuperDraft this past year, he only got onto the field once, a 12-minute effort against Sporting Kansas City on April 5. In this most unsavory Union defeat, the rookie looked the part as he was abused for 2 extra time goals, both in stoppage time. It was an unfortunate debut for the youngster and unfortunately for Lee, he was waived by the Union on August 28.
