[MLS RE-ENTRY PROCESS Stage 2] One of the most active Re-Entry Drafts concludes Wednesday with Stage 2. The list of 68 player eligible for selection is down to 48, which includes Pablo Mastroeni, Kevin Hartman and Chris Albright, who have all announced plans to retire.

Two Chicago Fire veterans -- Chris Rolfe and Logan Pause -- opted out of the process, as did D.C. United midfielder John Thorrington. Houston acquired the rights to defender David Horst from the Portland Timbers in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft.

Three former MLS MVPs -- Carlos Ruiz (2002), David Ferreira (2010) and Dwayne De Rosario (2011) -- are among the players eligible for selection in Stage 2.

Like in Stage 1, D.C. United, which finished with the worst record in 2013, has the first pick.

Any players not picked up after Stage 2 become available to any MLS club on a first-come, first-served basis.
