    Continuing an annual tradition, I am starting a thread for folks to track and update the various non-roster players who come in and out of pre-season camps - many of them will end up being roster road kill but some of them will resurface with other MLS teams at some point. Players include SuperDraft picks (all of them are shown including the GA and seniors who signed prior to the draft), Supplemental picks (will be added after Tuesday's draft), non-roster invitees from the same team as well as the traditional non-roster trialists from all corners of the planet. International players are noted as well as a player's former team. Here is the list as of now - I am sure that there will be plenty of additions as camps begin all over MLS:

    Zman, thanks for doing this thread.

    A few notes on draftees:

    *Ryan Finley should be listed as signed; he was one of the seniors who signed a pre-draft deal.
    *Meanwhile, I don't believe Erik Hurtado was in that group

    Hurtado signed right before the draft.

    Changed Finley in the initial post but Hurtado was not in the initial signed group but Ives said that he signed a deal while at the Combine.

    Does youth academy players not signed to main team count as 'trialist'?

    I usually include an academy section for them for each team since most often than not - they are there for training purposes and not a roster spot, at least in the short-run. I will add it for the next update.

    On another note, I attended Philly's practice today - there were 3 mystery trialists - trying to get names for them.
