The Galaxy, tied at the bottom of the Western Conference standings with six points thanks in large part to a struggling attack, on Wednesday traded veteran defender Tyrone Marshall to Toronto FC for forward Edson Buddle. The move came on the same day Portuguese center-back Abel Xavier trained with the Galaxy for the first time. Buddle, who has two assists in 10 games this season, has 48 goals since entering Major League Soccer with Columbus in 2001.

Galaxy midfielder Landon Donovan, who is battling bronchitis, withdrew Sunday from the U.S. national team ahead of its friendly Wednesday in Italy. Donovan, the U.S. team's all-time leader in goals and assists, also sat out two dates with the U.S. team in the fall while preparing for the MLS Cup final, which the Galaxy won, 1-0, on a goal by Donovan. Donovan, who had been playing the past two months with Everton of the English Premier League, sat out his last game there because of illness and has not trained with the Galaxy since returning from Europe.

Galaxy defenders Omar Gonzalez and A.J. De La Garza were among 25 players called into this week's training camp for the U.S. soccer team, but Galaxy captain Landon Donovan was not on the list, making it unlikely the national team's all-time leading scorer will play in the opening match of the final round of World Cup qualifying next month in Honduras. Also invited to camp at the Home Depot Center in Carson was Chivas USA striker Juan Agudelo and former Galaxy forward Edson Buddle, who was traded to the Colorado Rapids last month.

SEATTLE -- Galaxy captain Landon Donovan, who has been plagued by injury all season, did not dress for the Western Conference final against the Seattle Sounders on a wet and chilly Sunday night at CenturyLink Field. The scenario the Galaxy faces -- it takes a three-goal lead into the second of two matches in a Major League Soccer playoff series that will be decided on total scores -- might have had something to do with that decision. But the weather conditions and the punishing nature of Seattle's artificial turf might also be a factor.
