Examining all of unprotected players ahead of MLS expansion draft

Here’s a running look at each MLS team’s unprotected player list ahead of Tuesday’ expansion draft.

The name of each player is followed by their guaranteed compensation in 2016, position, age, and relevant stats. I’ll also include if I think they may be of interest to Atlanta United, based upon age, production and salary.

I will update the list as I complete each team.

Chicago

Arshakyan, David/$142,850/F/22/3 starts and no goals in 2016/Likely no interest.

Pappa, Marco/$110,000/M/29/152 starts since 2008/Possible interest as a reserve or spot starter. He will be available in the re-entry draft.
