    “We were excited about the opportunity to select Michael during the Re-Entry Draft,” Earthquakes general manager Chris Leitch said in a club press release. “He’s a 22-year-old with nearly 50 MLS appearances under his belt. We believe he can be a contributor in 2023.”

    Baldisimo signed with the Whitecaps as a homegrown player back in July 2018, going on to score one goal in 50 senior appearances across all competitions. The midfielder helped VWFC win the Canadian Championship during his final season with the club.
