The Fire used an open roster spot to sign Bratislav Ristic, 30, a well-travelled midfielder who has been training with the club on a tryout basis. He'll be available for selection once the necessary paperwork is completed.
Ristic helped Club Brugge win the Belgian Cup in 2001-02 and was the assist leader in the Ukrainian first division in 2005-06 while with Metalurh Donetsk. He started his pro career with FC Radnicki in Serbia and also played for clubs in Spain, Russia and Bulgaria.

The red card that defender Gonzalo Segares drew in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Los Angeles meant an automatic one-game suspension plus a $250 fine. Now Major League Soccer's Disciplinary Committee has decided that wasn't enough.
After reviewing the incident in which Segares collide with Galaxy defender Leonardo the Disciplinary Committee has added a second game to the suspension and another $250 to the fine. Segares will miss Wednesday's home game against Toronto and Saturday's road match at Real Salt Lake.
In a statement issued by MLS the Disciplinary Committee increased the suspension and fine on Segares because of ``the reckless nature of the action that endangered the safety of his opponent.''
