[MLS RE-ENTRY PROCESS Stage 2] The 2013 MLS Re-Entry Draft concluded Wednesday with the selection of seven players in Stage 2. Former MLS MVP Dwayne De Rosario went to his hometown Toronto FC. With the No. 1 pick, D.C. United selected Argentina Fabian Espindola. D.C. United led all teams with four picks in the two stages.
