Dax McCarty passed Roy Miller on May 2 to become the Red Bulls' 10th most capped player.

McCarty passed Miller against the New England Revolution on May 2, and holds a 1 game lead in total appearances after Miller came on as a substitute in the match against New York City FC.

McCarty now has played 137 matches for the Red Bulls, vaulting him into the top-10 for total appearances. Dax is 3 appearances from passing goalkeeper Tony Meola for 9th overall, and realistically could end up in the top 5 for total appearances for the franchise.

The Red Bulls acquired McCarty in the 2011 from rivals D.C. United in exchange for now-retired Dwayne De Rosario.

In addition to Miller, this season McCarty has passed club legends Thierry Henry and Tab Ramos on the all-time appearances list.

Here is a list of the ten most capped Red Bulls/MetroStars players:

Player Appearances
Mike Petke 197
Dane Richards 171
John Wolyniec 167
Carlos Mendes 166
Seth Stammler 157
Steve Jolley 147
Jeff Parke 143
Mike Magee 142
Tony Meola 140
Dax McCarty 137
