The Houston Dynamo have stayed busy since bowing out in the 2013 MLS playoffs nearly four weeks ago. On Tuesday December 17th, the Dynamo announced the acquisition of Portland Timbers defender David Horst in exchange for a natural fourth round draft pick in the 2014 MLS Super Draft.

Horst, a first selection in 2008 by Real Salt Lake appeared in two games for Portland in an injury plagued 2013 season. The 6'4" 210lb native of Pine Grove, Pennsylvania appeared in 42 games in six seasons.

The centerback started 31 games for Portland in 2012 before suffering a broken right leg this past March.

Dynamo president Chris Canetti was excited about the acquisition.

"Horst is 6'4" which should make for some good set piece chances and defending balls in the air. David Horst is a good pick up for us. Reliable, steady, veteran centerback that comes at the right value."

Horst tweeted "very excited to be joining the Houston Dynamo family."

The move addresses a void left by the departure of Bobby Boswell.
