Mariners & Angels acquire more worldwide slot money in pursuit of Shohei Ohtani

Mariners & Angels acquire more worldwide slot money in pursuit of Shohei Ohtani

Banuelos was probably the Mariners' top catching prospect in their minor league system, certainly from a defensive standpoint. 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.

In separate deals, the Mariners sent catcher David Banuelos to the Twins and the Angels sent outfielder Jacob Pearson to complete the transactions.

Two of the seven finalists for Shohei Ohtani acted Wednesday night to sweeten the financial incentive for the Japanese two-way star, but still trail the Rangers when it comes to available global signing bonus money.

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.

"I would love to thank the Angels for everything".

Ohtani met with representatives from all seven teams on Monday and Tuesday. 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.

Ohtani, 23, is a two-way star in Japan who wants to try to do the same in Major League Baseball. On the surface, it would appear the deals do nothing to further the two teams chances. 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.

Ohtani, the 23-year-old two-way star, is not believed to put a high priority on finances as he makes his decision, which must come by December 22. The Cubs, Dodgers, Giants and Padres are capped at $300,000. The Mariners have $2.557 million.

The Twins still have around $1.25 million left from their original bonus pool, which maxed out at $5.75 million and included $500,000 acquired from the Washington Nationals in a trade for all-star closer Brandon Kintzler. He remains a free agent.
