Following his release, Róchez was then claimed off of waivers by the Atlanta United. He’ll carry a Reserve Minimum Salary Charge.

Orlando City SC will carry the rest of his 2017 budget charge.

In a February 25 trade with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Róchez came to Orlando City SC. He then entered into the season opener in the 11th minute — and assisted on the game-winning goal by Cyle Larin.

He has been in MLS since 2012 — and he has 33 goals and 16 assists in a 132 appearances.

Róchez joined Orlando City in December 2014 from Real C.D. España from the Honduras Primera División.

During the 2015 season, he had three goals in 16 appearances for Orlando City SC. Last season, he began the season on loan with the Orlando City B in the United Soccer League.

He then was moved on another loan to Real C.D. España for the rest of the season.
