So much for getting acquainted with a new club.
Less than four months after selecting him in the Waiver Draft last November, the New England Revolution cut ties with midfielder Paolo DelPiccolo on Monday.
The 22-year-old central midfielder was drafted by the Impact in the second round of the 2013 SuperDraft. He was a college teammate of current Revolution right back Andrew Farrell, who reportedly helped convince the club to sign DelPiccolo.
But after the club drafted a trio of midfielders in the 2014 SuperDraft – including two in the first round (Steve Neumann and Patrick Mullins) – it appeared that the former Impact midfielder would have a tougher time finding opportunities in preseason camp.
In four preseason games with the Revolution this winter, DelPiccolo saw a combined 156 minutes, but did not record a goal or an assist.
Prior to joining Montreal midway through the 2013 season, the Louisville product spent time with Eintracht Frankfurt of the German Bundesliga.
With the departure of DelPiccolo, the Revolution roster currently stands at 27 players, three short of the maximum.
