Atlanta United will begin play in Major League Soccer in 2017.

Here is expansion draft player pool for Atlanta United

I’ll have much more on Tuesday’s MLS expansion draft and Atlanta United’s plans posted on ajc.com and myajc.com later today.

For now, here’s the list of players that were left exposed by the remaining MLS clubs who are aren’t participating in Tuesday’s shindig.

Atlanta United will have the first pick when the expansion draft begins at 2 p.m. Minnesota will have the second. Each team will get five picks. When a team’s player is picked, its remaining players are pulled back and no longer eligible to be selected. Each MLS team was allowed to protect 11 players. League rules stipulate that Generation Adidas players and Homegrown Players are already protected.

Atlanta United’s roster includes one goalkeeper, one defender, eight midfielders and four forwards . The team has used seven of its nine international spots allowed by MLS.
