Gregg Berhalter has called in a 29th player for his training camp ahead of a friendly against Jamaica on June 5

Colorado Rapids forward Jonathan Lewis has been added to the U.S. national team's training camp roster ahead of a June 5 friendly against Jamaica. 

Lewis, 21, was not part of Gregg Berhalter's initial 28-player team, which also does not include Christian Pulisic or Tyler Adams, who were both given time off to recover following the end of the Bundesliga season. 

Acquired by the Rapids in a trade in early May, Lewis has stepped in with the MLS side and made an immediate impact, with the club having run off three wins a draw and one loss in the five matches since his arrival. 

Lewis has chipped in with a pair of goals and an assist along the way while adding a weapon on the wings for the Rapids to turn to. 

“He’s an important piece for us,” Rapids midfielder Kellyn Acosta told the Denver Post. “He has added a dimension we didn’t have before. You can see his qualities come out, and he’s playing with a ton of confidence.”

Having been named as part of Berhalter's preliminary Gold Cup roster, the winger now joins the initial 28-man list released ahead of Wednesday's friendly

The USMNT will face Jamaica before taking on Venezuela in Cincinnati on June 9 in the final pre-Gold Cup tuneup. The Americans open their 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup on June 18 against Guyana in Minnesota. 

The roster deadline for the 2019 Gold Cup is set at midnight on June 5, marking the friendly against Jamaica as the last evaluation before Berhalter is to submit the final 23-player list to Concacaf.
