[HOMEGROWN WATCH] Two homegrown players -- D.C. United's Andy Najar and Chivas USA's Tristan Bowen -- make more than $100,000 in guaranteed compensation. For a look at what all the homegrown players earn ...

Najar's $155,800 in guaranteed compensation comes after his original contract, signed last year, was torn up following his 2010 Rookie of the Year season. He made $58,995.83 last season.

Bowen makes more than $106,363.63 in his fourth season in MLS. His guaranteed compensation of $76,363.63 in his first season with the Los Angeles Galaxy is the most any homegrown rookie has made.
