Blues waive veteran defender Chris Wingert


The Long Island-born Wingert logged the fifth-most minutes for the team in 2015, appearing as a left fullback and a center-half. His departure means yet another alum of Jason Kreis's Real Salt Lake teams won't be around for year two in the Bronx. Wingert earned $215,000 last year, and with multiple defensive signings sure to force him into a bench role, Claudio Reyna & Co. are content to do some addition by subtraction.
