Seven MLS players waived by their clubs

NEW YORK – Seven players were waived by MLS clubs on Wednesday but none were picked up in the Waiver Draft.

The same players had been left unprotected but were also not selected by the Vancouver Whitecaps or the Portland Timbers in the 2010 Expansion Draft held earlier on Wednesday:

Colorado Rapids (1): Ross Schunk

Real Salt Lake (1): Alex Nimo

Toronto FC (5): Gabe Gala, Raivis Hscanovics, Miguel Angel Martinez “Mista,” Martin Saric, Maxim Usanov

It should be noted that none of the seven meet the age and service requirements to participate in the Re-Entry Draft. They are now available to sign a new contract with any MLS club on a first-come, first-serve basis.
