Sources: Expect MLB probe after Ohtani choice

Despite repeated warnings by MLB prior to Shohei Ohtani's decision to play for the Angels, sources told ESPN they wouldn't be surprised if there was an investigation into the process.

Jerry Dipoto has said he wanted to acquire a center fielder for the Mariners ... so he acquired Dee Gordon from the Marlins. Seems strange except the Mariners apparently plan on moving Gordon to center field, which is a creative solution given Gordon's speed. He's signed for three more seasons plus an option so he could be a long-term solution there. They did give up Nick Neidert, their top pitching prospect. He's not a flamethrower, but immediately becomes one of the Marlins' top prospects as well and Derek Jeter has dealt away his first major chunk of salary.

Marlins trade Gordon to Mariners; will play CF

Second baseman Dee Gordon has been traded from the Miami Marlins to the Seattle Mariners, where he's expected to play center field. Seattle also received international slot money from Miami, reported to be $1 million.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Mariners traded catcher David Banuelos to the Twins for $1 million in international slot money -- just in case a little additional cash will help them to convince Shohei Ohtani to head to the Pacific Northwest. Of the seven finalists, the Rangers have the most bonus money to offer at $3.535 million while the Mariners can now offer $2.57 million. That probably won't be a deciding factor for Ohtani, but it certainly can't hurt. Banuelos was the team's fifth-round pick in 2017 out of Long Beach State and hit .236/.331/.394 at Class A Everett. He's regarded as a strong defensive catcher.
