While FC Dallas was getting set to take on the New York Red Bulls Friday evening, the club announced that they had loaned out Homegrown defender Moises Hernandez to NASL side Rayo OKC.

The loan for Hernadnez is slated to be a season-long loan in the NASL where he joins up with former FC Dallas midfielder Michel and Marvin Chavez, along with a slew of other former MLS players like Futty Danso, Ryan Johnson and Robbie Findley.

This isn't the first loan of Hernandez' career either. In 2012, FC Dallas loaned Hernandez to Guatemalan first division side Communicaciones. The following season he joined Deportivo Saprissa of the Costa Rican First Division. Hernandez returned to FC Dallas in 2014 under head coach Oscar Pareja where he appeared in 17 matches and starting 13 for a career-best 1,116 minutes.

Hernandez has been in the dog house for Pareja since the middle of last season when he lost his starting role to players like Atiba Harris and Ryan Hollingshead. Despite being a consistent starter in the Guatemalan national team, Hernandez hasn't seen the field for FC Dallas since August of last year when he was brought on late as a sub against Chicago. His last start was last May on the road in a 4-0 loss at Kansas City.

This move should allow Hernandez to get the proper playing time that he needs to continue developing as a player. He is still only 24 years old and has a lot left to offer this team.

One underlying thought about this move is that it does free up another roster spot for FC Dallas this season to play with should they choose to.

What do you all think of Hernandez getting another loan here? Is his time in Dallas done?
