SEATTLE - The Toronto FC revolution will have to start without newly acquired striker Gilberto.

The Brazilian designated player, one of several marquee acquisitions in the off-season, has been left in Toronto due to injury as manager Ryan Nelsen's revamped MLS team prepares for its season opener Saturday in Seattle.

Gilberto's pre-season has been disrupted by an upper leg injury. Unlike fellow designated players Jermain Defoe and Michael Bradley, Gilberto was also out of season going into the start of camp.

Toronto's home opener is March 22 against D.C. United.
