Former New York City FC goalkeeper Jeff Caldwell is now a member of the New England Revolution.
Caldwell was selected by the Revs in the Major League Soccer end of the year waivers Monday.
The clubs that finished at the bottom of standings had the first opportunity to select from out-of-contract players who do not meet the minimum number of service years for free agency or the re-entry process.
First up, FC Cincinnati added its midfield depth with former Philadelphia Union Haris Medunjanin. Medunjanin started all 34 regular season games and two in the MLS Cup Playoffs. He finished 11 assists.
Targeting goalkeepers, the Revs picked Caldwell and Minnesota United FC selected Greg Ranjitsingh, formerly of Orlando City SC.
Rounding out the process, the LA Galaxy chose former Real Salt Lake defender Danilo Acosta, who was loaned to Orlando City SC for last season.
The next postseason roster mechanism will be the re-entry process, Stage 1 on Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET.
