|Includes all competitive games (playoffs, Open Cup, Champions Cup, etc). Only 11 players have played for an MLS team without playing a regular season game, so it doesn't change things too much. There have been a total of 1,006 players total, so here's how they breakdown:|
Debuts By Year
Should be another higher year due to Toronto FC joining and the bigger rosters. Around 100 maybe? That's only 8 per team, which seems like a decent rate (see Debuts Per Year, below)
Debuts By Team
(Total Players Used in parentheses)
Yay, another first place ranking New York fans can be embarrassed about.
"Home Grown" Percentage
(how many players of the team's total used debuted for that team?)
The expansion teams will obviously rank lower here, except for Chivas which has their own "source" of players. The league's two most successful franchises are at the top. New York is an interesting case because they have brought in so many failures. See their rank in the next category.
Debuts Per Year
(measures only debuts into the entire league, not team debuts)
