As Geoff Cameron gets set to depart MLS for Stoke City, he'll do so as an All-Star. 

Cameron was named as one of 13 inactive MLS All-Stars Wednesday, joining teammate Brad Davis as those earning the player-voted honor. The league's collective bargaining agreement stipulates that at least 32 players earn All-Star distinction, and with the injury substitution of Justin Morrow for Heath Pearce and the late addition of Michael Farfan, the players' selections round out a 33-man squad.

One of the surprising selections by the players is FC Dallas' Brek Shea, who has struggled for the majority of the season but earned the honor nonetheless. Kenny Cooper has been enjoying a standout season for New York with 13 goals, and he was recognized by his peers as well.

With the inactive additions of Jon Busch and Marvin Chavez, San Jose accounts for six of the 33 All-Stars. With Kei Kamara and Roger Espinoza recognized, Sporting Kansas City has five.

Here are all of the 13 inactive All-Stars:


Jon Busch (San Jose Earthquakes)

Marvin Chávez (San Jose Earthquakes)

Kenny Cooper (New York Red Bulls)

Geoff Cameron (Houston Dynamo)

Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo)

Fabián Espíndola (Real Salt Lake)

Roger Espinoza (Sporting Kansas City)

Kei Kamara (Sporting Kansas City)

Fredy Montero (Seattle Sounders FC)

Jámison Olave (Real Salt Lake)

Marco Pappa (Chicago Fire)

Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)

Brek Shea (FC Dallas)
