MLS Waiver Draft: Luis Zapata, Edu Eligible

Jeff Vinnick

Luis Zapata and Edu are the only two players from the Rapids, following the big cuts that the team made, who will be available in the MLS Waiver Draft on Monday.

On Monday, the MLS Waiver Draft will likely distribute one or two players around MLS after teams make their post-season releases. The Rapids made a big old batch of cuts the other day, but only two players will be available in the draft due to the rules that differentiate the Waiver Draft with the Re-Entry draft that will come on December 6th. The two players available will be Colombian international Luis Zapata and that one Brazilian guy who we don't speak of.

Quite frankly, I can't see either of them being taken since they'll both take up an international slot, both are over 30 years old and neither of them are particularly world-beating players.

The Rapids have the sixth overall pick in the draft and depending on who is available, the Rapids just might pick someone up. Who knows, though?
