Fredy Montero voted “inactive” MLS All-Star

allstar 2012.jpgSounders FC forward Fredy Montero was one of 13 players named “inactive” MLS All-Stars on Wednesday by way of a player vote. There will be 33 All-Stars this year and the collective bargaining agreement stipulates that at least 32 are honored, so players can receive an appropriate bonus.

This is the third time in four years the 24-year-old Montero, who boasts five goals and four assists this season, has been an All-Star.

Seattle, of course, has two active All-Stars in midfielder Osvaldo Alonso and forward Eddie Johnson, who are set to take of Chelsea FC in the MLS All-Star Game at 5:30 p.m.

Here is the list of “inactives”:

Jon Busch, goalkeeper, San Jose Earthquakes

Marvin Chavez, midfielder, San Jose Earthquakes

Kenny Cooper, forward, New York Red Bulls

Geoff Cameron, defender/midfielder, Houston Dynamo

Brad Davis, midfielder, Houston Dynamo

Fabian Espindola, forward, Real Salt Lake

Roger Espinoza, midfielder, Sporting Kansas City

Kei Kamara, forward/midfielder, Sporting Kansas City

Fredy Montero, forward, Seattle Sounders FC

Jamison Olave, defender, Real Salt Lake

Marco Pappa, midfielder, Chicago Fire

Nick Rimando, goalkeeper, Real Salt Lake

Brek Shea, midfielder, FC Dallas
