NEW YORK -- Former Major League Soccer MVP Guillermo Barros Schelotto of the Columbus Crew was among the players left unprotected for Wednesday's Expansion Draft.

Schelotto, who won the MVP in 2008 when he led Columbus to the MLS Cup title, was joined on the unprotected list by teammate Frankie Hejduk, Red Bull New York striker Juan Pablo Angel, Chicago Fire midfielder Freddie Ljungberg, Real Salt Lake striker Robbie Findley and FC Dallas striker Jeff Cunningham, among others.

Each MLS club had the opportunity to protect 11 players from their 2010 roster and Generation adidas players (who did not graduate at the end of the 2010 season) and homegrown players are automatically protected and do not count against a team's 11 protected roster spots.

Designated Players with a no trade clause in their contract must be protected. MLS clubs may lose no more than two players from their 2010 roster during the Expansion Draft.

The Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps FC will each select 10 players during the 10-round draft. Through the expansion priority draft, Portland earned the first selection.
