Espindola available for re-entry draft
December 9, 2013
The list for the MLS Re-Entry Draft is out, and RBNY has five players on it. Leading the way is the team's second-leading scorer in all competitions, Fabian Espindola. Espindola is rumored to be in line for a massive pay raise.
Andre Akpan, who is out of contract, is on the list as well. The reserve striker was negotiating a new deal with the team, but, as of now, he enters the draft.
Rounding out the list are players already departed: Brandon Barklage, Heath Pearce, and the retiring Kevin Hartman.
The first stage of the draft is on Thursday.
RBNY has never drafted a player in the three previous years of the Re-Entry Draft.
