Danny Califf, Conor Casey and Will Hesmer were among the 14 players selected in Stage Two of the MLS Re-Entry Draft on Friday.
Califf and Casey were both selected in the first round, with Toronto FC picking up Califf with the first pick and Philadelphia Union taking Casey four spots later. Hesmer was grabbed by the LA Galaxy with the second pick of the second round and the defending MLS champions also picked up Colin Clark in the first round. The Galaxy moved into the second position in the draft after trading their natural first round pick in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft, an international roster slot in 2013 and the No. 19 position in Friday’s Re-Entry Draft to Chivas USA minutes before the process began.
Some of the players who were not chosen were goalkeeper Kevin Hartman, forward Juan Pablo Angel and Ramiro Corrales.
The players not selected in the Re-Entry Draft are now available to teams on a first-come-first-serve basis.
