Jeff Lemieux tweeted within the last hour that Steve Ralston‘s dislocated elbow, suffered less than a week after his re-signing with the Revolution, will keep him out of action for about a month.

Ralston played two minutes in New England’s exhibition against Brazilian club Cruzeiro on Sunday. The match drew about 12,000 fans on a day dominated by the Celtics regionally and the World Cup from a soccer-niche perspective, and cost the Revs the only help it could find in the midfield. And they lost 3-0. Worthy investment? Comment with your thoughts.

In hosting an international friendly against Brazil’s SC Cruzeiro at Gillette Stadium, the Revolution had two goals: to return Steve Ralston and Matt Reis to the field, and to not suffer any injuries.

Reis got the start and made two saves and gave up one goal against Brazil’s powerhouse crew, who would go on to defeat New England 3-0. He was replaced at halftime by Bobby Shuttleworth, who gave up two second half strikes. A source tells 6S1B that he looked comfortable in net and was moving well.

Following last Sunday’s embarrassment at the hands of Seattle, it may have seemed quite appealing to just shift focus to the World Cup and/or the NBA Finals and forget that New England had a soccer club for a few weeks.

The Revs will, however, take the field today in a friendly against Brazil’s SC Cruzeiro. This could do the club well before it takes the next two weeks off as it will provide the opportunity to try and get things together. Matt Reis and Steve Ralston are both expected to make their 2010 debut in the exhibition. Reis has been overcoming a couple of offseason surgeries and at last will get back in goal for New England. Ralston was just this past week re-signed and should slot in to a central midfield role.

According to the Revolution (who would know best), Steve Ralston will be re-donning his number 14 uniform. Sainey Nyassi will pick up number 17. No word yet on exactly how Ralston fits in — we don’t really have to worry, I suppose, for a few weeks — on the Revs’ current incarnation, but I doubt he’s coming back to ride the pine. The locker room presence angle is an important one, but I imagine he’ll see plenty of time on the field as well.

Sorry for so little coverage today (twenty hour work days warrant such acts, or lack thereof really, and it’s very tough to update a blog from a phone…) but we’ll have more on what this means for the Revs in the coming days. It might be World Cup season, but don’t stop coming by — we’ll have plenty of content during the season’s intermission.

When the newish home of former┬áRevolution midfielder Steve Ralston, second division AC St. Louis, folded recently, many speculated that perhaps the former captain, not to mention franchise (and MLS)┬áleader in a number of statistical categories, may make his way back to New England. Many others laughed at the notion; Ralston, 35, didn’t leave the Revs on great terms, and questions remain as to what he has left in the tank.
