Stefan Frei

SEA

Outstanding year-in and year-out for a really well-coached club. Diving saves still spectacular as he ages.Key pieces have left or are injured for Seattle. If youth doesn't step up, could be a down season by Seattle standards.Spencer Richey

PHI

Arguably best and most athletic MLS keeper when he's at the top of his game. Good team and system in front of him.Will miss time on international duty. Two or even three capable backups.

Tim Melia

SKC

Locked in. Isimat-Martin should be a huge upgrade at CB over Matt Besler. Excellent penalty kick stopper.SKC have had some stellar MLS defenses under Peter Vermes, but when it's been bad it's been really bad.John Pulskamp / Kendall McIntosh

Exceptional last year, which coincided with Minnesota's breakout season.Could miss for Canadian team duties at times. Tyler Miller was acquired to be the starter a year ago and is now healthy - job still appears up in the air.Tyler Miller

Pablo Sisniega

LAFC

Could be starter for one of league's best teams. Active outside the box and a good shot stopper.Kenneth Vermeer just as likely to start. Both unlikely to keep job all year.Kenneth Vermeer

Quentin Westberg

TOR

Defensive unit remains intact. One of the more active aggressive MLS keepers to track loose balls and snag crosses.New coach with a system that may not fit the defensive personnel. If Alex Bono gets hot, there's a chance he could reclaim old job.Alex Bono

Carlos Miguel Coronel

NYRB

Most talented in the three-way battle with Meara and Jensen. Team's potential is high although unproven.New coach, new system, and many new faces. Job not secure. Aaron Long, one of league's best defenders, will likely miss significant time for international play and CB depth is poor.David Jensen / Ryan Meara

 No Cards

 

17

David Ochoa

RSL

By far more talented than his competitors for the job. No longer due to miss for Olympics. Unremarkable but respectable defense and midfield guarding him.Putna and MacMath offer decent competition.Andrew Putna / Zac MacMath

JT Marcinkowski

SJE

Outperformed Daniel Vega and helped turn San Jose's 2020 season around.Quakes likely a roller coaster once more. Vega not out of picture in compact season.Daniel Vega

Bill Hamid

DCU

Unquestioned starter once healthy and would jump a few spots up the list. Hernan Losada's new system seems promising.Out at least a month with calf injury after recovering from hernia surgery. CB Steve Birnbaum out for months. Probably still below average roster in MLS. Risk of international duty, but not guaranteed.Chris Seitz

Jonathan Bond

LAG

Coaching upgrade. New potential in defense. Weak GK depth chart.Jonathan Klinsmann tabbed by some to win starting job. Galaxy defense can't be trusted until they show something...anything.Jonathan Klinsmann

Kenneth Kronholm

CHI

Presumptive starter over the capable Bobby Shuttleworth if/when back to full health. Fire like to build from the back more than most teams, limiting a negative SoRare score for turnovers.Still recovering from ACL injury. No guarantee to take back job. Inconsistent defense in front of him.Bobby Shuttleworth

Clement Diop

MTL

Returning starter on a defensive minded team. Benefits from SoRare scoring but only really matters if he's getting frequent clean sheets to build off of.Projects to be a below-average MLS defense and team. Job maybe not as safe as expected.James Pantemis / Sebastian Breza

23

John McCarthy

MIA

Better than commonly believed and the defense in front of him has a high ceiling if all clicks.More gaffe-prone than many MLS keepers. Could be replaced in summer transfer window (Nick Marsman is the rumor). Callendar exciting prospect behind him.Drake Callender

Przemyslaw Tyton

CIN

Incumbent Starter. Big off-season shows ownership willing to invest - defender in summer?Cropper is a decent challenger. Cincy defense is still shallow, and likely poor, for at least first few months. Big salary makes him a transfer candidate.Cody Cropper

Marko Maric

HOU

Job security. Off-season acquisition Tim Parker upgrades the defense. New pressing mentality could help.Not a lot of reason to like the Dynamo defense.Michael Nelson / Kyle Morton

Likely to reclaim job after last season's injury.Will miss time with Canadian national team. Strong competition from Thomas Hasal. Whitecaps are a dysfunctional franchise until they prove otherwise.Thomas Hasal
