Hartman, Wynne and Angel among players left in MLS Re-Entry Process

By IVES GALARCEP

FC Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman, Colorado Rapids defender Marvell Wynne and Chivas USA forward Juan Pablo Angel were among the players left available for the 2012 MLS Re-Entry Draft.

Teams have until 5pm on Thursday to re-sign these players. The Stage One Draft for the players left in the Re-Entry process will take place on Friday. The Stage Two Draft will take place on December 14th.

Chicago left back Gonzalo Segares, San Jose centerback Ike Opara and Portland left back Rodney Wallace are three other players who were somewhat surprising inclusions in the re-entry process.

Clubs must exercise the option for, or extend a Bona Fide Offer to, all players selected in Stage 1.  Players that were out of contract may either accept or reject the Bona Fide Offer. Should a player reject the offer, the drafting club will hold the right of first refusal for that player in MLS. Players with option years left on their contract will automatically be added to the drafting club’s roster.

The first Re-Entry Draft is generally the quieter one, with teams reluctant to pick up players at the options they are available at, but once players pass through that phase, and then move onto the second re-entry draft, things get much more interesting and more players will be selected.

Here is the complete list of players left available for the MLS Re-Entry Process:
