Saborio assisted on a goal in the 2-0 win over New England on Saturday.

Saborio has been crucial in the offense of D.C. with four goals and three assists. His four goals are in just 10 appearances, but he will likely need to continue to produce for his fantasy value to stay constant.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Saborio (leg) is in the starting lineup Saturday against New England.

Saborio has missed the last three games with the injury, but he has finally recovered enough and will instantly move back into the starting lineup. He could be a value pick in fantasy with his level of production in limited play this year, four goals and two assists.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Saborio did not play Saturday against the Dynamo because of a leg injury, the Washington Post reports.

Saborio's injury came after he missed time with D.C. United while he participated in Copa America, and it was an even bigger hit because Fabian Espindola also sat with a leg injury. The severity of Saborio's latest issue hasn't been disclosed, so it's unclear when he will be able to play again.

Saborio joined up with the Costa Rican national team on Friday in preparation of Copa America.

Saborio, who has been getting starts of late in place of Fabian Espdinola, will miss at least two MLS games, with the earliest return coming June 18 against Houston if Costa Rica fails to advance out of the group stage.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Saborio scored a goal, and earned an assist in Saturday’s 3-0 win over New England.

Saborio was a factor in both late goals to guarantee the win for D.C., after coming off the bench in the 44th minute. Saborio assisted on the second goal for D.C. and scored the final goal to put the game out of reach. Even with three goals on the season Saborio’s fantasy value is limited with him coming of the bench.

Saborio scored two late goals in the 4-0 victory over Vancouver on Saturday.

Saborio subbed off Fabian Espindola, who also scored two goals in the match, in the 79th minute. He netted his two goals on three shots, scoring late in the 88th and 90th minutes. He's been used as a substitute in three matches this season and these were his first goals of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Saborio will not play Saturday against FC Dallas, as he will be away on international duty with Costa Rica.

Saborio has found playing time a bit hard to come by early this season, so his absence isn't likely to make a significant dent in D.C.'s plans. That being said, he's expected to return for their April 2 match against San Jose.

November 20, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Saborio signed a contract extension on Tuesday to remain in D.C., with the details of the contract being undisclosed.

Saborio, who is 33, scored four goals in 15 appearances after arriving at the club, which gave him 27 total regular season appearances for both United and Real Salt Lake last year. He's eighth all time in scoring among active MLS players, with 67 goals and 13 assists in 139 appearances over his six seasons.
