    SAN JOSE, California – The San Jose Earthquakes announced Monday that the club traded defender Steven Beitashour to the Vancouver Whitecaps FC in exchange for allocation money.

    Beitashour had two goals in 87 appearances during his four years with the Major League Soccer side.

    The 26-year-old, a native of San Jose, joined the club as a second round (30th overall) selection in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft.  He appeared in only one of the Earthquakes’ four matches during its run to the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals, going 90 minutes in a Group 5 clinching 1-0 win over visiting Heredia on October 23, 2013.

    After missing San Jose’s first six games of 2013 while recovering from surgery to repair a sports hernia, Beitashour closed the year with one goal in 27 games.  He also earned his first international cap as a second-half substitute for Iran in a 2015 AFC Asian Cup Qualifier against Thailand on Oct. 15, 2013.
