INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Louisville defender Andrew Farrell has been selected by the New England Revolution with the top pick in Major League Soccer's draft.

The 20-year-old was a first-team All-American last season as a junior, when he shifted from midfield to the back line.

Connecticut midfielder Carlos Alvarez was taken by Chivas USA with the second pick. From East Los Angeles, Alvarez was with the U.S. Under-20 team in 2008 and Mexico's Under-20 team the following year.
