The move gives the Mariners $2.55 million available to give the highly coveted Ohtani, while the Angels now have $2.315 million.
The Angels also made a similar trade with the Twins on Wednesday evening, sending outfield prospect Jacob Pearson to Minnesota for $1 million in bonus pool money.
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 global free agents.
Pearson, 19, was the Angels' No. 5 prospect according to MLB.com, although he would have likely fallen one slot when the deal for Kevin Maitan is finalized. The Rangers, Cubs and Padres also met with Ohtani on Tuesday.
It is unconfirmed, but the Angels nearly certainly made this deal in order to be able to offer Japanese superstar Shohei Ohtani more money.
Ohtani has until December 22 to make a decision on what team he will select. The global bonus pool money is the only additional dollars that teams can pay Ohtani. Due to his age, Ohtani can only sign a minor league contract and is subject to the worldwide bonus pool. 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.
