Gonzalo Pineda - Seattle Sounders - looking to the heavens

Major League Soccer announced Tuesday the list of players eligible for the 2015 Waiver Draft.

A total of 30 MLS players are eligible for the Waiver Draft, which will be held at 4:30 pm ET on Wednesday. The Waiver Draft consists of players who have been waived by their clubs and are not eligible for the Re-Entry Draft or Free Agency. Under-contract players who are selected in the Waiver Draft will be automatically added to the drafting club’s roster. Clubs that claim out-of-contract players must issue a genuine offer to the selected player.

The Waiver Draft order is determined by the reverse order of the final standings in the MLS season, taking into account postseason performance. More information on the waiver process.
