Union Pass On Selection In MLS Waiver Draft

Hunter Martin

The Philadelphia Union did not select anyone in the Major League Soccer Waiver Draft.

In a move that appears to be addition by subtraction, the Philadelphia Union cut three players and chose to not take any in today's Major League Soccer Waiver Draft.

While there were some notable names and interesting prospects open to any team willing to select them, most clubs that have reported their Waiver Draft actions decided to pass on their turns.

In terms of the Union, Corey Hertzog, Ruben Luna, Tyler Ruthven, Julio Cesar, Teemu Tainio and Carlos Rodriguez headlined the list of available players for the Union, but apparently none of them were attractive enough on the field or for Philadelphia's financial system to draft them.

The Union had released Gabriel Gomez, Porfirio Lopez and Krystian Witkowski into the Waiver Draft and thus far no reports from teams indicate any of them have been selected. The only player to have been selected was Cole Grossman, by Real Salt Lake, as the rest of the teams who have confirmed their actions passed.
