TFC's Edwards picked in expansion draft

Marco Urena is selected third by LAFC in the 2017 MLS Expansion Draft

The roster for the debut season of Los Angeles FC continued to come together Tuesday as the team made its selections in the MLS expansion draft, with goalkeeper Tyler Miller the first player chosen and Costa Rica worldwide Marco Urena among the picks.

After spending the past two-and-a-half seasons as the primary backup goalkeeper for the Seattle Sounders, Tyler Miller is off to join expansion side LAFC.

Miller, 24, made two starts past year with the Sounders. He scored three goals and added an assist in 25 games in his debut season in the league.

The club selected five players, from five different clubs to start the foundation of the clubs roster. He also scored the opening goal in the club's U.S. Open Cup championship victory in September. Blessing also received his green card, meaning he will not occupy an worldwide roster slot for USA based teams. During the regular season, the forward managed to score five goals for the Quakes, including the decisive goal that sent San Jose through to the playoffs on Decision Day. He also starred as the main goalkeeper for Sounders FC 2 over the past two seasons.

The MLS Expansion Draft has subtracted from the Sporting Kansas City roster once again. That said, since both he and Edwards play the same position, don't be surprised if only one of them is kept - if either of them are. The jury is still out overall, but the club did make a trade with Montreal Impact after the draft. They are pieces to build around Carlos Vela and two other Designated Players to be signed later.
