Pioneer Press: Twins use international bonus money to acquire two minor-league prospects

The Twins were unable to make it to the final round in the competition for Shohei Ohtani, but they still found a way to capitalize on the mania surrounding the two-way Japanese sensation.

In separate trades announced Wednesday night, the Twins shipped $1 million of their remaining 2017-18 international bonus money to both the Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels in exchange for promising 2017 June draftees.

Surprised more of the runners-up haven’t tried this.
