MLS Expansion Draft 2022- Philadelphia Union leave six players unprotected including Alejandro Bedoya
The Philadelphia Union have announced who they will be making available in the upcoming MLS Expansion Draft for the newly minted St. Louis CITY SC.
It should come as no shock that big names and stars are amongst those on the protected list. So no, you don’t have to worry about Daniel Gazdag shipping out west to score goals on the banks of the Mississippi river. But that isn’t to say there isn’t a surprise addition to the list of unprotected players. Union captain Alejandro Bedoya will be there for the taking should St. Louis choose to make him one of their five selections.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Bedoya get selected. Any expansion team is likely to be on the lookout for a veteran leader. The 35 year old would certainly provide that to the new club.
The full list Philadelphia Union players protected from the MLS Expansion Draft
“Protected from selection are the following players: Andre Blake, Cory Burke, Julian Carranza, Jack Elliott, Leon Flach, Daniel Gazdag, Jakob Glesnes, Jose Martinez, Olivier Mbaizo, Richard Odada, Mikael Uhre, and Kai Wagner.
Additionally, the following Union players are automatically protected as Homegrown Players on a club’s Supplemental or Reserve roster: Paxten Aaronson, Brandan Craig, Matt Freese, Nathan Harriel, Jack McGlynn, Jeremy Rafanello, Matt Real, Anton Sorenson, Quinn Sullivan, and Cole Turner.”Via philadelphiaunion.com
