Arbitration News: Anibal Sanchez and Emilio Bonifacio
- Updated: February 7, 2012
On Monday, Miami Marlins starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez won his arbitration case against the Marlins. He will earn $8 million this season. The Marlins had offered him $6.9 million. Sanchez became the first player to win in salary arbitration this year.
Anibal Sanchez, 27, will be a free agent after the 2012 season ends. In 2011, Sanchez went 8-9 with an ERA of 3.67 in 32 games started, as he struck out 202 batters in 196 innings pitched.
This could be Anibal Sanchez’ last year with the Marlins if they can’t agree to a contract in the winter.
Emilio Bonifacio could be the second player who defeats salary arbitration against the Marlins.
Today, Miami Marlins utility Emilio Bonifacio argued his arbitration contract. Bonifacio wants to raise his $425,000 to $2.2 million but the Marlins are asked to pay Emilio $1.95 million.
A decision is expected by Wednesday.
Bonifacio batted .296 last year with five homers, 36 RBIs and 40 steals in 51 tries and was named “Player of The Month” in July.
