BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, July 2, 2012
Former US U-20 midfielder Moises Orozco has been loaned from Tigres to Correcaminos UAT of Mexico's second tier, the Liga de Ascenso.

The loan is for six months and it will run through the Apertura season.

"It's a good opportunity for Moises to get back around a first team," Orozco's agent Chris Megaloudis told YA on Monday. "He has had some injury setbacks but seems on track again. Primera A is a good place to get started after being in the U20s with Tigres for awhile. Glad Tigres are loaning him out with hope he grows as a player for them in the future."

Orozco, 20, is a native of Oxnard, California native who broke in the US U-20 in 2010 and signed with Tigres that year. He has been a regular with Tigres' U-20 team ever since but has not been able to make their first team.

In 2011/12, Correcaminos UAT were nearly promoted to Mexican Primera. They advanced all the way to the Championship Finals and defeated Leon in the first leg 2-1 at home. In the second leg, however, they saw their promotional dreams evaporate and were defeated 5-0 on the road to lose the series 6-2 on aggregate.

I hate to be the harbinger of bad news, ladies and gentlemen, but Michael Orozco will start for the US men's national team in Jacksonville.
