The New England Revolution placed Matt Reis on the disabled list on Friday as the goalkeeper continues his recovery from surgeries on his left shoulder and left knee.
The 35-year-old keeper has yet to play for the Revs this season, and with fill-in Preston Burpo listed as probable with a concussion for Saturday's match against FC Dallas, the club wanted to add another netminder as a contingency plan.
Moving Reis to the DL cleared up a roster space for New England to sign 22-year-old former Providence College goalkeeper Tim Murray. The native of Haverhill, Mass., will be third on the depth chart against Dallas, behind Burpo and second-year keeper Bobby Shuttleworth.
Murray has been training with the club since early March. He was the starter at Providence College, finishing his career with a 1.01 goals against average in 60 starts. He posted 27 shutouts.
Reis had surgery in December to repair a torn left labrum and rotator cuff, then another procedure in February on a tendon in his left quadriceps. His target date is still set for mid-May, but his move to the DL means he will miss the next six games.
