  • Borman claimed by Revs


    Danleigh Borman is on his way to New England after being selected by the Revs in the first stage of the re-entry draft today.

    With all three Canadian sides skipping the stage, Borman’s selection was the only relevant news for Canadian fans from the draft.


    The fullback will be joining his third team of the calendar year. He is expected to make $44,100 in 2012.

    Although Borman was a consistent starter for the Reds when he first came to Toronto as part of the Dwayne De Rosario trade, he fell out of favour with Aron Winter as the season progressed. It was highly unlikely that he would have been back with Toronto, even if he had not been selected.

    Two other players were picked up in stage 1, which requires clubs to honour the terms of the player’s option year. Salt Lake claimed Arturo Alvarez and Carlos Mendes is on his way to Columbus.

    Stage 2 of the draft goes next week. In the second stage, teams are claiming exclusive bargaining rights with the player. Any player that remains unselected after stage 2 is free to talk to any club in the league.
