Mariners, Angels Make Trades to Free Up International Money for Shohei Ohtani

Both the Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners made trades with the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night to increase their global signing bonus pool.

MLB.com reporter Mark Feinsand reported that the Mariners made a trade with the Minnesota Twins to acquire $1 million in global signing bonus money. Banuelos, 21, hit.236 with four home runs in 36 games for the Class A Everett (Wash.) AquaSox after signing in July.

In separate deals, the Mariners sent catcher David Banuelos to the Twins and the Angels sent outfielder Jacob Pearson to complete the transactions. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2017 draft out of Long Beach State and signed for a $300,000 bonus. He played 40 games for the Rookie League AZL Angels last season, hitting.226.

Los Angeles paid Pearson, 19, above slot at $1 million to keep him from signing with LSU after taking him in the third round in June.

"I would love to thank the Angels for everything". There are seven teams in the running - Texas, San Diego, the Chicago Cubs, the Angels, the Mariners, the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco.

Rosenthal noted the Angels received $1 million in additional worldwide slot money as a result of the move. The team that lands him can sign him to a minor league deal. The Angels now have around $2.3 million to offer him. But the Mariners general manager's actions speak volumes about their dogged pursuit of the most coveted free agent of the offseason.

"I know the questions you all want to ask regarding Shohei Ohtani, but at this time, I'm not going to make any comments on anything to do with Mr. Ohtani", Dipoto said on the call. The Twins had $3.2 million in their worldwide pool, but Ohtani narrowed the list of teams he was considering to seven finalists, and the Twins were not on the list. The Rangers, Cubs and Padres also met with Ohtani on Tuesday.
