According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, a decision on how much Marlins right-hander Anibal Sanchez will earn this season is expected to be announced on Monday.

Sanchez requested an $8 million salary and was offered $6.9 million from the Marlins when arbitration figures were exchanged last month. The two sides argued their cases Friday in an arbitration hearing.

Sanchez, 27, registered a solid 3.67 ERA and 202/64 K/BB ratio across 196 1/3 innings in 2011. He’s scheduled to become a free agent in the fall, though the Marlins have expressed some interest in locking him up to a long-term contract extension.

    I can imagine how Scrooge McLoria must feel about Anibal: “That ain’t friendly of you kid. I make you a nice offer, you gimme da high hat.”

    Can’t believe that the Marlins ownership doesn’t believe that Anibal isn’t worth half of what they just signed Buehrle for on a yearly basis. Makes me think they have every intention of letting him walk when he hits FA at the end of the 2012 season.
