Mariners acquire global bonus money from Twins

But the Mariners general manager's actions speak volumes about their dogged pursuit of the most coveted free agent of the offseason.

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.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Angels have acquired $1 million in global slot money from the Twins in exchange for minor league outfielder Jacob Pearson.

The Twins ended up with $3.25 million in global bonus money when they voided the contract of Jelfry Marte, a 16-year-old shortstop from the Dominican Republic. The Texas Rangers still lead the pack among the Ohtani finalists with $3.5 million. The Twins announced the deal will send $1 million in bonus funds to the Mariners for the 21-year-old catcher.

With the deal, the Angels now have $2.315 million they can offer Otani as a signing bonus, according to the Orange County Register.

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. In his first pro season, he hit.236 (30 for 127) with eight doubles, four homers and 26 RBI in 36 games for Short-season Everett.

A delegation from the Mariners met with Ohtani on Tuesday in Los Angeles at the offices of Creative Artists Agency. The Dodgers, Angels and Giants met with him on Monday. A decision is expected to be made within the next week and we can all collectively hold our breath as one of the best pitchers on the planet decides where he wants to play in 2018. It is bonus pool money and prospects, two things that are not exactly sexy in the way that a Giancarlo Stanton trade will be, whenever it happens.
