About an hour later, Seattle announced that it had sent minor league catching prospect David Banuelos to Minnesota in exchange for $1 million of the Twins global pool money.

As part of the pursuit of Japanese two-way star Shohei Ohtani, the Mariners on Wednesday acquired $1 million in worldwide slot money from the Twins.

The Angels' third-round pick in June 2017, Pearson hit.226 with a.302 on base percentage in the rookie-level Arizona League this summer. Going to the Twins will be catching prospect David Banuelos. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2017 draft out of Long Beach State and signed for a $300,000 bonus. 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. "I am Offically a Twin and can not be more excited!" The other four finalists - the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants - are restricted during this global signing period to no more than $300,000 in any individual signing bonus.

Ohtani's representatives told the Twins on Sunday he would not sign with Minnesota.

Whichever team Ohtani chooses to sign with will owe his Japanese club a $20 million posting fee.

Whichever team lands the free agent from Japan will acquire arguably the top prize on the free-agent market.

Volkswagen executive jailed for seven years for role in diesel scandal
In August, VW auto engineer James Liang received a 40 month sentence and a $US200,000 ($263,713) fine for his role in the scandal. Regulators in the United States and Europe are investigating other automakers for potential violations of diesel emissions rules.

Rosenthal noted the Angels received $1 million in additional worldwide slot money as a result of the move. The Rangers, Cubs and Padres also met with Ohtani on Tuesday. Because Ohtani is under 25 he is subject to worldwide spending limits, which severely limits his earning power on the free market.

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.
