Sounders FC takes Union GK Chris Seitz in re-entry draft

UPDATE 12:49 p.m. According to a league release on the re-entry draft results, Seitz has signed with Sounders FC and has been added to the team’s roster. Though to avoid any possible confusion, just because he has signed does not mean he’s guaranteed to stay with Seattle.

Whew! The second stage of the MLS re-entry draft was a blur on Twitter this afternoon. The whole thing, with 11 total picks, took about 15 minutes — so if you blinked, you missed it.

With the ninth overall pick, Sounders FC drafted Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Chris Seitz. Seattle now has his rights, but both parties must agree to a new contract before he’s added to the roster.

Expect a handful of trades to take place throughout the day as well.

Here are the final results, with ex-Sounders defender Tyrone Marshall going to Colorado.

Round 1

* D.C. United: Josh Wolff (signed)

* Chivas USA: Jimmy Conrad

* New England Revolution: Ryan Cochrane

* LA Galaxy: Juan Pablo Angel

* Chicago Fire: Cory Gibbs (signed)

* Sporting KC: Frankie Hejduk

* Seattle Sounders: Chris Seitz (signed)

* Columbus Crew: Jeff Cunningham

* LA Galaxy: Luke Sassano

* Colorado Rapids: Tyrone Marshall

Round 2
