LAFC Protects 12 Players Ahead Of 2019 MLS Expansion Draft And Full Eligible Player List Announced

LAFC announced today that the Club has protected 12 players in advance of the 2019 MLS Expansion Draft scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 19.

The following LAFC players will not be eligible for selection by Nashville SC or Inter Miami FC during the Expansion Draft:

GK Pablo Sisniega
DEF Tristan Blackmon
DEF Diego Palacios
DEF Eddie Segura
DEF Walker Zimmerman
MID Eduard Atuesta
MID Latif Blessing
MID Mark-Anthony Kaye
FWD Adama Diomande
FWD Brian Rodriguez
FWD Diego Rossi
FWD Carlos Vela

Earlier today, MLS released the list of 222 players available for selection in the draft. Expansion clubs Nashville SC and Inter Miami CF will have the opportunity to select up to five players each from the eligible player list.

The Expansion Draft eligible player list includes players from 19 MLS clubs. D.C. United, FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo, New York Red Bulls, and Vancouver Whitecaps FC are exempt, having had a player selected in the 2018 MLS Expansion Draft. 

MLS Homegrown Players ages 25 and under (those born during or after 1994), as well as Generation adidas players that did not graduate from the program following the 2019 season are automatically protected, therefore clubs did not need to use one of their 12 selections to protect them.

Once a player has been claimed from a club's list of eligible players, Nashville SC and Inter Miami may no longer select players from that club's list.

Complete rules and information for the 2019 MLS Expansion Draft are available here.
