Yesterday MLS held its first stage of the Reentry Draft, where players who were out of contract or had options not picked up by their former clubs, but not yet eligible for free agency, could be chosen by new squads. Only two players were picked. Tyrone Mears was selected by Minnesota United and Mike Grella was taken by the Colorado Rapids. Grella was subsequently sent to Columbus for a 2019 MLS SuperDraft pick. In this stage, teams had to pick up the entire contract of a player. In tomorrow's second round, teams can negotiate new deals with their selections.

There were also a handful of other MLS deals from yesterday:

  • Sporting Kansas City signed French midfielder Yohan Croizet to a DP contract. He arrives from Belgian club KV Mechelen and will be with SKC until 2020 with an option for 2021.
  • Drew Moor resigned with Toronto FC for one year with an option for 2019.
  • Houston Dynamo signed goalkeeper Chris Seitz off the free agent market. He spent the last seven years with FC Dallas, where he started 96 games with 18 clean sheets.
  • LA Galaxy are set to acquire David Bingham from San Jose for around $200,000 in MLS funny money. Bingham would represent LA's clearest number one keeper since Jaime Pineda left town a couple years ago.
