Blake was selected by Philadelphia Union first overall in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft. Originally anticipated to be the Union's starting goalkeeper, he was deputized to the bench when the Union signed designated player, Raïs M'Bolhi. Blake would make his first appearance for the Union in a friendly match against Crystal Palace in July 2014. He would make his first competitive start for the Union in a 1-0 win against Montreal Impact who debuted Didier Drogba as their new designated player. Blake would start for five of the remaining eight matches in the 2015 season. One of his most notable performances was on September 26, 2015, playing against New England Revolution, where Blake set a Union team record for saves in a match with 10 stops to preserve a 1-1 draw.
