According to the Oct. 1 MLS Players Union Salary List, Revolution allocation pick Juan Toja is the second-highest salaried player on the club, with a figure listed at $200,000.

Toja was signed by the club on Aug. 27 via the allocation process, which allows teams, via lottery, to acquire a former MLS player who returns to the League after having gone to a club abroad for a transfer fee. The Revolution held the first selection in the process when they selected Toja, who became available after he left Greek club Aris earlier this year.

The 27-year-old Colombian played for FC Dallas from 2007-08 before he was tranferred to Steaua Bucuresti (Romania). During his stint in Dallas, he earned an annual salary of $100,000.

The only other addition to the Revolution’s salary list since Aug. 1 – the date of the previous ledger – is midfielder Blair Gavin, who’s figure is listed at $80,000.

Gavin was acquired by the club on Aug. 1 in a trade that sent longtime Revolution midfielder Shalrie Joseph to Chivas USA. The Revolution also received Chivas USA’s natural second-round SuperDraft selection in 2013, as well as allocation money.

Benny Feilhaber remains the highest-paid Revolution player with a salary of $446,000.
