Angels trade prospect to get more money to pursue Shohei Ohtani

Angels trade prospect to get more money to pursue Shohei Ohtani”

The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels, in pursuit of Japanese two-way star Shohei Ohtani, each acquired $1 million in global bonus allocations from the Minnesota Twins Wednesday.

A couple of American League West teams made moves Wednesday to acquire global slot money while the baseball world waits to see where free agent Shohei Ohtani signs. Banuelos, 21, hit.236 with four home runs in 36 games for the Class A Everett (Wash.) AquaSox after signing in July.

The Twins, who had $3.25 in global bonus money available, then picked up outfielder Jacob Pearson from the Angels. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2017 draft out of Long Beach State and signed for a $300,000 bonus.

He was limited by injuries last season, especially on the mound, but hit.332 across 65 games.

Pearson was Los Angeles' third-round selection this year.

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

Japanese superstar Shohei Ohtani met with representatives from seven different teams, including the Mariners, Padres, Dodgers, Rangers, Giants, Cubs, and Angels.

Ohtani, 23, is a two-way star in Japan who wants to try to do the same in Major League Baseball.

Teams interested in signing Ohtani are limited to the amount they have available in their global bonus pools.

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. But the Mariners general manager's actions speak volumes about their dogged pursuit of the most coveted free agent of the offseason. Also, all three major league outfielders - Mike Trout, Justin Upton and Kole Calhoun - are now signed through 2020, at least.

Minnesota had $3.07 million in bonus pool money before the trades, but it is not among the finalists in the Ohtani bidding.
