Fire gear up for MLS draft

Patrick McDermott

Fire could keep one of their own players during second phase of MLS re-entry draft.

The second phase of the Major League Soccer Re-Entry Draft is Friday, and the Chicago Fire have to decide whether to keep one of their three players available.

In the first phase of the draft, team's weren't allowed to select their own players. Chicago was the only team to make a pick in the first phase, taking Maicon Santos, a forward from D.C. United. In the second phase, teams can keep their own players who they originally put on their re-entry draft list.

The Fire could decide to keep goalkeeper Jay Nolly, midfielder Corben Bone or defender Dan Gargan, who were all unclaimed in the first phase of the draft.

Len Ziehm of Comcast Sports Chicago listed the following players as people Chicago consider drafting from other teams: Juan Pablo Angel and Danny Califf of Chivas USA, Conor Casey and Tyrone Marshall of Colorado, Julian DeGuzman and Kevin Hartman of FC Dallas, and Ramiro Corrales and Khari Stephenson of San Jose. Former Fire players Chad Barrett (Los Angeles) and John Thorrington (Vancouver) are also available in the draft.
