The Seattle Sounders FC announced Monday that midfielder Peter Vagenas has been placed on the disabled list. The reason is a right quadriceps strain.

As a result of his injury Vagenas, 32, is required to miss six games. Included in that number was the San Jose Earthquakes match on July 31.

Vagenas is eligible to return to MLS play for the September 9 match in Seattle against the Real Salt Lake.

The 5-8, 163 pound Vagenas is in his tenth season in Major League Soccer. He played college soccer at UCLA.

Vagenas has started all seven appearances in 2010 and has played a total of 542 minutes.
