Fresh off its second Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup title, could FC Dallas be about to add an MLS MVP to its ranks for the stretch run?

Okay, okay, so it’s the 2002 MLS MVP.

Taylor Twellman reported late Tuesday that Guatemalan legend Carlos Ruiz could be returning to Major League Soccer.

The free agent’s last competitive game was for Guatemala against Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, where he scored five goals in a 9-3 win. He’s been with Municipal since 2014, where he scored 46 goals in 88 appearances during his second stint with the club.

Ruiz last appeared in MLS with DC United in 2013.

FC Dallas has a four-point lead on the Galaxy for the Supporters’ Shield.
