Angels trade international slot money to Mets for prospects Concepcion, Perez

USA TODAY Sports

Two prospects head to LA in exchange for $360,500 in international bonus money.

The Los Angeles Angels have acquired outfielder Julio Concepcion and right-handed pitcher Andres Perez from the New York Mets in exchange for their second international bonus slot, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. The slot is worth $365,500, which the Mets can now use to sign international free agents.

Concepcion, 23, has hit .238 with 3 RBI in six games for Single-A Brooklyn on the season. He has spent seven years in the Mets minor league system, but has never progressed past Single-A.

Perez, 22, has appeared in seven games for Rookie-level Kingsport on the season, and is 0-2 with a 5.52 ERA in 14.2 innings of work. In five seasons with the Mets organization, he has never advanced past rookie ball.

Both Concepcion and Perez are considered organizational players who do not project as prospects, so the Mets were able to let them go in exchange for international bonus money. Baseball America did not include either player in their ranking of the top 30 Mets prospects before the season.
