Timbers shore up defense with addition of Nat Borchers

Nat Borchers comes to the Timbers in a trade with Real Salt Lake.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland Timbers midfielder Diego Valeri has had surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

It is expected that Valeri will miss at least five months after Monday's operation, so it is unlikely he'll be back in time for the start of the 2015 season.

Valeri was injured in the Portland's season finale, a 2-0 victory over Dallas on Oct. 25.
