Danny Califf Selected by Toronto FC in Re-Entry Draft, Chivas USA Pass

So long, Danny. - Victor Decolongon

The second phase was busier than the first, but Chivas USA stand pat in today's draft.

The second phase of the Re-Entry Draft has just taken place, and the results are in. Former Chivas USA defender Danny Califf was selected first overall by Toronto FC, meaning there are two fan bases (Chivas, Philadelphia Union) who will be upset that he's not playing for them in 2013. TFC can now negotiate with Califf for a new contract, with more flexible terms (meaning he will most likely take a pay cut).

The other three Chivas USA players in the mix, Juan Pablo Angel, Peter Vagenas, and Alejandro Moreno, were not selected today, and are now officially free agents. They can still potentially negotiate with Chivas USA to return, but they can also negotiate with any club in the league.

Meanwhile, Chivas USA did not select any players in the Re-Entry draft. They made a trade with the LA Galaxy just before the draft today, with the Galaxy taking Chivas' second overall pick in exchange for the Galaxy's 19th overall pick, a 2013 international roster spot, and the Galaxy's first round Supplemental Draft pick. With the Goats trading down, it seemed pretty clear that they weren't using the Re-Entry draft to select MLS veterans this year.
