FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal has been informed by sources that the Diamondbacks and catcher Miguel Montero are likely to require an arbitration hearing, scheduled for Tuesday morning.

Montero requested $6.8 million and was offered $5.4 million when arbitration figures were exchanged earlier this month. The two sides have been unable to find a middle ground in the weeks since, and that’s unlikely to change within the next few days.

Montero, 28, posted a .282/.351/.469 batting line with 18 home runs and 86 RBI in 140 games last season while earning $3.2 million as a second-year arbitration-eligible player. He’s currently on track to become a free agent after this year’s World Series.
