Enzo Martinez waived with no first-team appearances

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Enzo Martinez's time at Real Salt Lake has come to a close, with the Uruguayan midfielder -- a Generation Adidas player -- waived ahead of the new season, according to RSL communications.

Martinez, Real Salt Lake's first-round draft pick, played for three years at University of North Carolina before signing a Generation Adidas contract.

Those contracts are typically tailored for young, promising players deemed professional-ready, but for whom turning pro would mean leaving college early.

Martinez, 23, never made a first team appearance for RSL during his two years at the club. He featured in numerous reserves outings and did make the bench on occasion.

Much of 2013 for Martinez was spent on loan at NASL side Carolina Railhawks, and he has apparently moved there now to continue his career with the Railhawks.

With 26 players on the roster, RSL's roster remains near completion despite the Martinez departure. However, his departure does not ease salary cap pressures, as his Generation Adidas salary did not impact the cap.
