Four weeks into the regular season and the rookie race continues to be pretty slim. Nine players from the rookie class were loaned out, leaving a select few to step up and set the pace for the rookies in 2014.

For now Chicago’s Harrison Shipp is setting the pace with two assists. We shouldn’t be shocked by this early pace by Shipp as he helped lead Notre Dame to a national title last fall.

Week 4 minutes:

90 Eric Miller (Montreal)
90 John Berner (Colorado)
90 Jared Watts (Colorado)
90 Harrison Shipp (Chicago) – one assist
87 Thomas McNamara (Chivas)
45 Patrick Mullins (New England)
14 Sean Okoli (Seattle)
4 Marc Sherrod (Houston)
2 Marlon Hairston (Colorado)
1 Adam Bedell (Columbus)

*Made MLS Debut

Total minutes for the season:

Homegrown Players:

Harrison Shipp (Chicago) – 246 minutes, 2 assist
