The Galaxy said Friday it signed midfielder Laurent Courtois, who was released by Chivas USA on June 30.

After signing with Chivas USA midway through the 2011 season, Courtois appeared in 33 regular-season games, including five this year. He scored once this season, on June 29, in Chivas USA's 1-1 tie with the New England Revolution.

Chivas USA knew it was getting a pretty good prospect when it signed 16-year-old striker Caleb Calvert as a homegrown player. And now, less than a week after becoming the youngest professional player in franchise history, Calvert is already beginning to rack up the awards, being named the U.S. Soccer Development Academy's U-16 National Player of the Year. "I feel honored and proud," said Calvert, the nation's top age-group scorer with 22 goals in 27 games for the Chivas USA Academy during 2012-13.

Chivas USA is last in Major League Soccer's Western Conference, is averaging less than a goal a game and hasn't won a match since March. But you can't accuse them of giving up. On Wednesday, the team acquired forward Erick Torres on loan from its Mexican League sister club, Chivas of Guadalajara, in an effort to jump-start an offense that ranks last in the conference with 16 goals in 18 games. For Torres, meanwhile, the move to MLS offers a much-needed chance to jump-start a once-promising career that has stalled.

It's not yet 11 a.m. and the temperature already is nearing 90 degrees as Galaxy rookie Gyasi Zardes drives his right leg through one penalty kick after another on a practice field next to StubHub Center. When practice is over, the 21-year-old forward strolls off the field sweating heavily but smiling, and why not? The Hawthorne native scored the only goal in the Galaxy's recent 1-0 win over Chivas USA. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Zardes - easily recognizable with his blond-and-black Mohawk haircut - is one of the Galaxy's most promising players.
