Sandoval takes the roster spot of Brady Bryant, who was placed on injured reserve with a broken toe suffered in a pre-season game, but played four games. He recently had surgery on the toe. Sandoval has been playing professionally since he was 14. He played for the Mexican National Futsal (an indoor variation played on a gym floor) at the 2012 World Cup in Thailand, where he was a teammate of current Wings player Omar Quiroz. “We’re extremely pleased to be able to add a player of Adrian’s caliber,” Wings coach LeBaron Hollimon said. “His experience and quality will greatly stabilize our defense as well as give us added depth, which will be critical going into the final stretch of the season.”
