Yesterday, it was reported that Shohei Ohtani had completed all of his meetings with the final seven teams vying for his love and attention.

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

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.

Just minutes later, it was announced that the Los Angeles Angels sent their 2017 third-round pick Jacob Pearson to Minnesota, also acquiring $1 million in global cap space in the process. The Texas Rangers still lead the pack among the Ohtani finalists with $3.5 million. The Twins still have $1.25 million in bonus pool money.

He said that Kapoor was happy to make the acquaintance of the guests from Peshawar in his Mumbai home. His colleagues and family members were the first one to arrive at the prayer meet.

The Giants, Dodgers, Padres and Cubs can only offer Ohtani a bonus of $300,000 because they exceeded their bonus pool under the previous collective bargaining agreement. 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 Twins were not one of the seven finalists for Ohtani's services so they exploited a market with teams desperate for worldwide spending money.

The meetings followed talks Monday with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Los Angeles Angels and the San Francisco Giants.

There's no harm in Ohtani taking his time with this, since it's a major life choice and he's not even getting paid hundreds of millions of dollars as a cushion that would make him feel better if he makes the wrong choice. Because he's under age 25, he can only sign a minor league rookie contract, meaning he will make the league minimum for the first three seasons before becoming arbitration eligible. 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.
