The Houston Dynamo announced that Alex Dixon has been sent out on a short-term loan deal with the San Antonio Scorpions of the NASL.

The Houston Dynamo announced that midfielder Josue Soto has been loaned to the San Antonio Scorpions of the North American Soccer League (NASL). The loan is effective immediately and will expire on May 7, at which time Soto will return to the Dynamo.

"[Josue] issued his desire to go out on loan to get more playing time and I think it's a great idea," Kinnear told the media after training. "The first place we talked about was San Antonio because the proximity and the fact that I know the coach and so far it's worked out pretty good."

The 23-year-old midfielder was signed by the Dynamo to a homegrown contract on January 19, 2011. Soto has yet to appear in a regular season match, but made his professional debut as a substitute in last year's friendly against Bolton Wanderers of the Barclays Premier League.

This year, Soto has made two appearances (one start) for the Dynamo Reserves. Soto recorded an assist in a 3-0 win over the Sporting Kansas City Reserves on March 27.

More thoughts on this after the jump.

This is really a case of good news, bad news for Dynamo fans. Soto has tremendous promise and looks to be a player for Houston's future, so we all want to see him in Dynamo orange. But, if he is not seeing the field for Houston, then his skills and condition will diminish. Soto needs playing time and to get it he is having to go out on loan.

The good news is that this loan gives his a month a way from Houston to be a star in San Antonio. This loan could also give him a chance to play in different midfield positions with the Scorpions. Another benefit of the loan is that it means other Dynamo players can step up and fill the void. Alex Dixon and some of the other fringe players will get minutes and also gain experience.
