2018 MLS Expansion Draft

Rules Of The Draft (via: MLS Media Report):

Current MLS clubs protected 11 players from their 2018 roster, with the five teams that had players selected by the Los Angeles Football Club in the 2017 MLS Expansion Draft exempt from this year’s draft (Columbus Crew SC, San Jose Earthquakes, Seattle Sounders FC, Sporting Kansas City and Toronto FC). Since 2014, each round of expansion has involved two incoming clubs selecting from the eligible player list. Therefore, for the competitive consistency of the MLS Expansion Draft process, LAFC and FC Cincinnati are considered a single round of expansion.

LAFC players will be eligible for selection this year by FC Cincinnati.

Generation Adidas players (who did not graduate at the end of the 2018 season) and Homegrown Players on a club’s off-budget roster are automatically protected and do not count against a team’s 11 protected roster spots. Designated Players are not automatically protected. If a Designated Player has a no-trade clause in his contract, then the club must protect him in the Expansion Draft.

Once one player has been selected from a team’s unprotected roster, that team may not lose any further players (all additional players from that team become ineligible for selection).
