Cosmos B sign Rafa Garcia, Darwin Espinal

Cosmos secure former Galaxy and Rowdie


Today Cosmos B announced today the signings of Rafa Garcia and Darwin Espinal.

Garcia spent his career as the captain of the USL’s LA Galaxy II and a role player for the first team Galaxy. During his tenure with Los Angeles, he won the MLS Cup in 2012 and 2014. He plays primarily as a holding midfielder, but can also fill in at right back.

Garcia will likely become a formidable presence the spine of this Cosmos B team. Plus, those rings speak for themselves.


Darwin Espinal has previously featured for the Tampa Bay Rowdies, as well as Reno 1868 FC of the USL. Known for his pace and his explosiveness, he was once rated as the Premier Development League’s Top Prospect.

In the club’s official press release, Manager Carlos Mendes expressed his excitement over the versatility Espinal brings to the Cosmos’s attack:

The Cosmos will need all hands on deck with the NPSL season starting next Sunday against Boston City FC.
