Charlotte FC made an announcement on Tuesday indicating that they have decided to release experienced defender Joseph Mora from their roster. Mora, a 30-year-old left back from Costa Rica, had been picked during the 2021 MLS Expansion Draft as part of Charlotte's preparations for their inaugural 2022 season. After being with the team for a period, he has now left the squad. Throughout his time with the team, Mora participated in 27 regular-season matches, 20 of which he started for the club. However, his playing time this year has been quite limited, with him accumulating a mere 190 minutes on the field.

Before his stint with Charlotte FC, Joseph Mora had a four-year tenure (2018-2021) with D.C. United. During his time there, he played a total of 97 matches, with 81 of those being starts. Throughout his contributions, he managed to provide four assists to his teammates. 

This decision to let go of Mora comes shortly after the team made a move to acquire Jere Uronen, an international left back from Finland, from the French club Stade Brestois 29. The roster adjustment also coincides with Charlotte FC's current standing in the Eastern Conference, where they currently hold the 12th position. In their second season of existence, the team is striving to secure their first-ever qualification for the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. As they continue to compete, they are also set to face Inter Miami CF, led by the renowned Lionel Messi, in the Leagues Cup quarterfinals on Friday night.
