The Mets have added to their international bonus pool by acquiring an international slot value from the Angels in exchange for outfielder Julio Concepcion and righthander Andres Perez.
The Mets will receive the Angels’ No. 2 slot value (the No. 51 overall slot), which carries a value of $360,500. The Mets now have an international bonus pool of $3,025,100, while the Angels’ pool drops to $1,633,200.
Concepcion, 23, has played in six games this season for short-season Brooklyn, while the 22-year-old Perez has a 5.52 ERA in seven appearances (six in relief) in the Rookie-level Appalachian League. Neither player ranked among the Mets’ top 30 prospects entering the season and both players are more organizational players rather than true prospects.
