On September 15th, the day of the MLS Roster Freeze, both Damion Lowe and Kevin Parsemain were removed from Seattle's Disabled List. This removal means both players take up roster spots and are now eligible to play for the Seattle Sounders.

Damion Lowe is a Jamaican CB who was drafted 7th overall in the 2014 MLS Superdraft after Seattle traded up with Chicago. He is currently under a Generation Adidas contract. But a hip injury suffered early in the season necessitated surgery and he has been out since, though he was able to play 30 minutes in Seattle's most recent Reserve League match versus Arizona United.

Kevin Parsemain is a 26 year-old forward from Martinique with international experience, having Captained his squad in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. He suffered a torn ACL on April 6th and had surgery on the knee later that month. He was initially expected to miss 6 to 7 months with the injury, so it appears his recovery is ahead of schedule.

It's unknown if both players are healthy and fit enough to contribute first team minutes, but the push to get them off the injured list prior to the Roster Freeze allows both players to be eligible for regular season minutes and the playoffs when and if they do become ready. With today's announced signing of Onyekachi Apam, plus the news that Lowe and Parsemain are off the disabled list, Seattle's depth just got even deeper.
