Mariners, Angels each get $1 million for Ohtani from Twins

Angels trade prospect to get more money to pursue Shohei Ohtani

Money doesn't seem to be the primary concern for Ohtani, given that the 23-year-old could have stayed in Japan and waited two more years until he was an unrestricted global free agent and made considerably more money.

The Seattle Mariners announced they traded minor league catcher David Banuelos to the Minnesota Twins in exchange for the global slot money.

The move gives the Mariners $2.55 million available to give the highly coveted Ohtani, while the Angels now have $2.315 million.

What's more, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported the Los Angeles Angels traded outfielder Jacob Pearson to the Twins in exchange for money.

Putin will allow Russians to compete at Pyeongchang Olympics
However, Pyotr Tolstoy, deputy speaker of the State Duma, the Russian parliament's lower house, has called for a boycott. No other country in the world - save, perhaps, Norway - puts as much stake in the Winter Olympics as the Russians do.

This is significant because the Mariners and Angels are two of seven teams still in the running for Ohtani, who profiles as both a potential ace on the mound and impact hitter at the plate, and Ohtani is subject to the strict bonus limits that cover July 2 worldwide free agents.

Pearson, 19, was selected by the Angels in the third round of the 2017 draft.

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

Rosenthal noted the Angels received $1 million in additional worldwide slot money as a result of the move.

Pearson, rated the Angels' No. 5 prospect by MLB.com, went nine picks after fellow LSU signee Blayne Enlow, a promising high school right-hander the Twins signed for $2 million. The Rangers have $3.535 million while the Cubs, Dodgers, Giants, and Padres have $300,000 each. They were not among the teams invited to meet with Ohtani, so they didn't have as much use for the extra money. Because Ohtani is under 25 he is subject to global spending limits, which severely limits his earning power on the free market. However, he has a slew of endorsements in Japan and likely will add more once he joins the Major League Baseball that help keep him well-financed.
