The remodeling of the Fire roster didn’t get any help Wednesday.

Major League Soccer held the dispersal draft of Chivas USA’s roster, and like 12 other teams the Fire passed. Only seven clubs chose a player, with one taken after the Fire didn’t select anybody with the 13th selection.

Former Fire defender Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, traded to Chivas USA this August for allocation money, wasn’t selected.

In October, MLS announced Chivas USA folded and would be replaced in 2017 by a new expansion team, joining the Galaxy in the Los Angeles market.

Without Chivas USA but with the additions of Orlando City and New York City Football Club, MLS will have 20 teams next season. Sporting Kansas City will move into the West, leaving each conference with 10 teams.
