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

Angels trade prospect to get more money to pursue Shohei Ohtani

What's more, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported the Los Angeles Angels traded outfielder Jacob Pearson to the Twins in exchange for money. The other four finalists - the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants - are restricted during this worldwide signing period to no more than $300,000 in any individual signing bonus.

The pursuit of Shohei Ohtani isn't really about money, though maybe it is, at least in a relative sense.

The Mariners are one of seven teams who met with Ohtani and his agents in Los Angeles earlier this week, and they're awaiting word on what comes next with the 23-year-old two-way standout.

From Seattle, the Twins get catcher David Banuelos. The Seattle Mariners made a similar deal with the Twins in order to acquire global slot money of their own on Wednesday night. The catcher, who turned 21 in October, hit.236/.331/.394 with four home runs and eight doubles in 36 games for Class-A Everett in the Northwest League.

He also voiced his hope that "peace and prosperity" would prevail for the Palestinian people. Pope Francis met with a Palestinian delegation in the Paul VI Audience Hall.

Pearson was a third-round pick in 2017 by the Angels out of high school in Louisiana, and in his professional debut hit.226/.302/.284 in 40 games in the Arizona Rookie League. MLB Pipeline rated him as the fifth-best prospect in the Angels' system.

The Twins ended up with $3.25 million in worldwide bonus money when they voided the contract of Jelfry Marte, a 16-year-old shortstop from the Dominican Republic.

The Twins could still look to re-sign Dominican shortstop Jelfrey Marte, the 16-year-old prospect whose $3 million signing bonus was voided last month due to concerns about his vision.

Whichever team lands the free agent from Japan will acquire arguably the top prize on the free-agent market. The Rangers have $3.535 million while the Cubs, Dodgers, Giants, and Padres have $300,000 each. Due to his age, Ohtani can only sign a minor league contract and is subject to the worldwide bonus pool.
