                === Dallas confirms Diaz to miss 6-10 weeks ===
 
 Frisco,  TX  (SportsNetwork.com)  -  FC Dallas  confirmed  on  Wednesday  that
 midfielder Mauro Diaz will undergo surgery on his right knee next week, ruling
 him out for the next 6-10 weeks.
 
 The  23-year-old left his team's match against D.C. United on April 26 shortly
 before  halftime with the injury, and he missed FCD's 1-0 loss to Red Bull New
 York on Sunday.
 
 Dallas  originally believed  the injury  was  not serious,  but after  further
 tests, the team has confirmed that Diaz will require surgery.
 
 After  arriving  in Dallas as a  Young Designated Player last summer, Diaz has
 enjoyed  a strong start  to the 2014 season with three goals and three assists
 in eight matches.
 
 The  club is  also expected to be  without defender Kellyn Acosta for the next
 six weeks because of his own knee injury.
