Sounders hold four picks in 2014 SuperDraft

mls logo newUPDATE: The Sounders will hold the final pick of the SuperDraft after receiving a natural sixth-round pick for San Jose for the rights to Cordell Cato.

MLS confirmed the order of the 2014 SuperDraft late Tuesday night, which also gave resolution to an old trade.

Remember Mario Martinez? Well, the Sounders gave up a conditional pick to Real Salt Lake for his rights back on Aug. 1, 2012, and that pick was just revealed as a fourth-rounder (No. 70 overall).

Regarding some outstanding issues, Seattle gave up a conditional pick to Toronto FC to acquire Marcus Hahnemann in 2012, and that pick is yet to be revealed. It wasn’t listed on the league website, so perhaps it’s for the 2015 season or dependent on Hahnemann signing, which is expected but not official.

Here are Seattle’s picks in the Jan. 16 draft:

*     *     *

First round — No. 13 (No. 13 overall), natural pick

Second round — No. 2 (No. 21 overall), acquired from Chivas USA in Shalrie Joseph trade

Note: Natural pick (No. 32 overall) traded to Houston in Servando Carrasco trade

Third round — No. 17 (No. 55 overall), acquired from Portland for rights to Mikael Silvestre

Note: Natural pick (No. 51 overall) traded to Vancouver for move up Re-Entry Draft order for Marc Burch

Fourth round — No. 20 (No. 77 overall), acquired from San Jose for right to Cordell Cato

Note: Natural pick (No. 70 overall) traded to Real Salt Lake in exchange for rights to Mario Martinez.
