By National Team:

Adrian Ramos    F    Borussia Dortmund
Ramos (ankle) is recovering faster than expected, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ramos was ruled out for three months shortly before this summer's Copa America but looks like he will return sooner than expected. The player had a poor first season with Dortmund but sporting director Michael Zorc has said that he is confident he will make a big impact when he returns: "If he did not have the quality to play for us, we would not have signed him."
Ciro Immobile    F    Borussia Dortmund
Immobile has not been the subject of any transfer bids, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Depite strong rumors that the Italian may be going elsewhere this summer, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has revealed that no bids have been made. Zorc was quoted as saying that "we have received no offers for Immobile. He is still a part of our squad." Meanwhile Immobile's agent seems to have ruled out any move whatsoever. He stated that "Dortmund have taken him off the market. He's going to join the German club on their summer preseason training camp."
Lucas Vasquez    M    Real Madrid
Vasquez has been bought back by Real Madrid from Espanyol, Sky Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Winger Vasquez was sent out on loan to Espanyol last year by Real with an option to buy at the end of the 2014/15 season. Espanyol exercised the clause to purchase the midfielder but Real have stepped in and made an arrangement to buy him back. The player had three assists and six goals in 33 league games last season and Real were so impressed that they have taken back Vasquez on a five-year deal.
Joevin Jones    D    Chicago Fire
Jones has left the Fire and has already joined up with the Trinidad and Tobago national team for the Gold Cup, the Trinidad Daily Express reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Trinidad and Tobaga aren't expected to progress far in the tournament, so Jones isn't expected to miss all of July, but he still figures to miss multiple MLS games.
Brad Davis    M    Houston Dynamo
Davis (knee) is listed as probable to play in Friday's game against the Fire, Darrell Lovell of MLSsoccer.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Davis has dealt with a knee issue over the past couple of weeks and was actually sent home from the Gold Cup because of this injury. However, he's apparently made a speedy recovery and even has a shot to rejoin the starting XI for Friday's match.
Rob Lovejoy    F    Houston Dynamo
Lovejoy (hamstring) is not expected to play in Friday's game against the Fire, Darrell Lovell of MLSsoccer.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Lovejoy sprained his right hamstring during this past Friday's game against FC Dallas and was prematurely forced off the field after just 29 minutes. It was Lovejoy's second start of the season, but Brad Davis (knee) is considered probable for Friday's game and could end up regaining a spot in the starting XI over Lovejoy for the remainder of the season.
Eric Ayuk    M    Philadelphia Union
Ayuk will be suspended for the July 11 game against the Timbers after picking up a red card in the Union's most recent game against the Impact.

Fantasy Analysis

Ayuk's next opportunity to play in MLS competition will be against Toronto FC on July 18. Andrew Wenger should be in store for added playing time while Ayuk takes a seat on the bench.
Sanna Nyassi    M    San Jose Earthquakes
Nyassi will be suspended for Sunday's game against the Timbers due to yellow card accumulation.

Fantasy Analysis

Nyassi's next opportunity to play will be against the Dynamo on July 10. In the meantime, both Tommy Thompson and J.J. Koval have opportunities for added time on the field.
Alan Gordon    F    Los Angeles Galaxy
Gordon will be suspended for Saturday's game against Toronto FC due to yellow card accumulation.

Fantasy Analysis

Gordon has failed to reach the 25 minute mark in his last four MLS games so his absence against Toronto won't likely create significant opportunities for his fellow bench players. His next opportunity to return will be July 17 against San Jose.
Chris Duvall    D    New York Red Bulls
Duvall is expected to miss the next 3-4 months after undergoing surgery to correct his broken tibia, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Duvall suffered the injury during Wednesday's U.S. Open Cup game against the New York Cosmos and had to be stretchered off the field. His prolonged absence, combined with his teammates' international obligations, should create some unexpected minutes for both Anthony Wallace and Connor Lade.
