Chivas USA select no players in Re-Entry Draft

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Good move, or folly?

Phase two of the MLS Re-Entry draft took place Wednesday, and Chivas USA selected no player in either stage.

Although they were far from the only team to not select any players in the process, among the teams with the biggest rebuilding projects this offseason (D.C. United, Toronto FC, and Chivas) the Goats were the only ones to stand pat regarding the Re-Entry draft specifically.

The conclusion of the Waiver draft and Re-Entry draft means free agency begins in earnest now within MLS, along with the trade window remaining open. You will recall that Chivas made two trades last week, for midfielder Mauro Rosales and defender Andrew Jean-Baptiste. The international transfer window opens next year before the 2014 season begins.

Bear in mind that today is also Liga MX "draft" day, which is a system meant to restrict free agency in a way similar to the Re-Entry draft in MLS. With no word on who is really running the show for Chivas USA at the moment, and without a head coach in place, is it a surprise that Chivas USA didn't make any moves today? The front office is busy with Chivas de Guadalajara, in other words. Is it fair? Maybe not, but that's the perception unless we learn otherwise.

Among the big names taken today, D.C. United took forward Fabian Espindola and TFC took Dwayne De Rosario. Chivas' entrants in the draft, Ante Jazic, Steve Purdy and Josue Soto, were not selected in either stage. They could come back to Chivas, but that seems unlikely.
