It's not quite a first-choice lineup, but the Seattle Sounders were able to get most of the band back together for Saturday's match against the Houston Dynamo. The most notable addition to the starting lineup was Osvaldo Alonso, who will see his first minutes of the 2015 season. Clint Dempsey, Obafemi Martins and Chad Marshall also returned to the starting lineup after injuries caused them to miss last week's game against FC Dallas.

There were also a couple surprises in the group. Dylan Remick will get his first start of the season, displacing a seemingly healthy Leo Gonzalez at left back. Andy Rose also got the nod over Marco Pappa at right midfield, who was held out presumably because of his 80-minute performance for Guatemala on Tuesday.
