Carlos Salcedo could be set for a playoff-time departure with the Mexican Under-21 national team for the Central American and Caribbean Games, according to Tom Marshall, a reporter focusing on Mexican soccer.
Hearing that two players from MLS are set to appear for Mexico in the Central American Games in November: Carlos Salcedo and 'Cubo' Torres.

The young center back, who has been deputizing for Chris Schuler, whose injuresome collision with Nat Borchers is well-known by now, could miss significant playoff time for the club, should his selection be confirmed.
The games run from Nov. 14 to Nov. 30, which would rule him out for the Western Conference finals. It's not immediately clear if he'd miss the Nov. 9 match against LA Galaxy, and there is no guarantee that he'd miss any time at all, with RSL having a two-legged affair with the Galaxy to contend with before worrying about the conference finals.
Salcedo has been involved recently with Mexican youth setups, and while the tournament does allow for three players born before 1993.
