In Stage 2 of the Re-Entry Process, #RBNY passes.— New York Red Bulls (@NewYorkRedBulls) December 18, 2013
The Red Bulls didn't see anything they liked in stage two of today's Re-Entry Draft, and that's hardly surprising.
When the list of Re-Entry Draft eligible players were released last week we could only find four players the Red Bulls should take a closer look at, and of those players they were all either taken in the first stage or traded for, save David Ferreira, who wasn't much of an option to begin with. One of those players was Bobby Convey, who the Red Bulls traded for.
This afternoon, there wasn't a lot left to get excited about and, clearly, Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh and Head Coach Mike Petke weren't.
While those two stayed quiet, there was one bit of Red Bulls-related news in the draft: The movement of former Red Bulls around the league.
Fabian Espindola landed in Washington, and will suit up for D.C. United next year. Dwayne De Rosario, who played all of 13 games in a Red Bulls shirt, ended up back home with Toronto FC. Corey Hertzog was taken by the Seattle Sounders and will be joined up in Cascadia by Medhi Ballouchy, who was taken by the Vancouver Whitecaps. Brandon Barklage, who we were sure would be taken, is now with the San Jose Earthquakes.
