No L.A., Chivas changes on re-entry list
No changes in the list of Galaxy and Chivas USA players available for Monday's second-stage draft in Major League Soccer's re-entry process.
Galaxy defenders Frankie Hejduk and Dasan Robinson are up for grabs, and so is the Chivas USA quintet of goalkeeper Zach Thornton, defender Andrew Boyens, midfielders Simon Elliott and Mariano Trujillo, and forward Chukwudi Chijindu.
Vancouver midfielder Peter Vagenas, the former Galaxy captain from Pasadena and UCLA, and Portland midfielder Rodrigo Lopez, from Wilmington, also are on the list.
Chivas has the No. 4 selection in the draft, and the Galaxy pick 18th.
Clubs must make contract offers within seven days to players selected in the second stage of the draft and retain the rights of those taken if an agreement can't be reached. They may select their own players in the draft only after every other club has passed on them.
Those not selected become free agents.
Among the more interesting players on the list are midfielders Baggio Husidic (from Chicago) and Clyde Simms (D.C. United), and defenders Marc Burch (D.C.), Ryan Cochrane (New England), Jonathan Leathers (Vancouver), Chris Leitch (San Jose) and Shavar Thomas (Sporting Kansas City).
