HARRISON, N.J. – The Red Bulls selected goalkeeper Kendall McIntosh on the 13th round of Stage One the MLS Re-Entry Drart Tuesday.
New York had been looking to bolster its goalkeeping corps after it released long-time keeper Luis Robles and Evan Louro, who had been performing with Red Bull II, last week.
McIntosh, 25, split time as the Portland Timbers backup and Portland Timbers II starter last season.
The Santa Rosa, Calif. native made his Timbers debut against San Jose in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup June 6, 2018, recording a clean sheet in the 2-0 victory. He registered 60 starts and 10 shutouts with Timbers II since 2016.
McIntosh played for the U.S. Under-20 men’s national team at the Northern Ireland Milk Cup. He was part of the U-14 national development program and the U-15 Boys national team prior to residency with the U-17 team. At the 2011 CONCACAF Championships in Jamaica, McIntosh helped the U.S. to a 3-2 win against El Salvador and recorded shutouts against Jamaica and Canada, allowing the Americans qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Mexico
The players selected in Stage One will be exercised with their contract option for 2020, or if they are out of contract, an offer must be extended that is at least equal to the player’s 2019 compensation. The players selected in Stage Two can have their contracts renegotiated.
In 2019, McIntosh earned a base salary and guaranteed compensation of 70,250.04, according to the MLS Players Association.
