TAMPA, FLA (CNN/SI) -- Bolivian forward Jefferson Gottardi was waived Wednesday by the Tampa Bay Mutiny, and replaced on the roster by Ghanian defender Joe Addo.

Gottardi was loaned to MLS from his club team Bolivar on February 2, and was assigned to the Mutiny as one of their foreign allocations. He started in all 11 matches he played for Tampa Bay, and totaled four goals and one assist.

"Jefferson has talent that we will miss seeing mature," Mutiny head coach Tim Hankinson said. "But with the number of season-ending losses to defenders we've gone through, the inconsistency we've experienced in the back has convinced me that a player of Joe Addo's ability as a natural defender is necessary. As many times as we have asked midfielders -- even creative midfielders -- go play out of position in the defense leaves me no choice but to add Joe to our team."

Addo is the captain of Ghana's national team, and has 34 caps and two goals in international competition. He played in the last two Olympic Games for Ghana, helping lead is squad to the bronze medal in 1992.
