Yours truly has been knocked out by a nasty cold, and thus has had to get all her LA Galaxy reserve league match info second hand. As a result, we'll let Adam Serrano tell you all about the interesting updates:

Leonardo going from playing a few minutes at the end of last week's reserve league match to starting and playing 45 minutes this week is certainly a sign of progress. He's still listed as out on the injury report, but that could be bumped up to doubtful after this weekend. Still don't think he sees any time in May, but certainly it's a positive sign.

Brian Perk went the full 90 in the reserve league match, though he's still listed as questionable on the injury report. Last week, with Perk listed as questionable and Saunders unavailable, the Galaxy had to list MLS pool keeper Brian Rowe as the backup.

Hector Jimenez getting time at right back, going the full 90 on Tuesday, after seeing Sean Franklin get another start in the midfield in Seattle is another interesting development. If Bruce Arena wants to get more crosses from the left side, and better finishing up top, moving Landon Donovan to forward, Franklin it's Donovan's spot, and Jimenez in at right back is a possible solution.

The other bit of news to come out of the reserve league match was Robbie Keane's travel schedule for the European Championship. He will leave May 20th, after the Galaxy-Chivas derby match, and return whenever Ireland is eliminated.

It'll be interesting to see what lineup moves Bruce Arena makes trying to right the ship going forward. What do you think of these developments?
