The Marlins and RHP Anibal Sanchez avoided arbitration Monday by agreeing to a one-year, $1.25 million contract.

 

Sanchez has struggled since breaking into the league with a 2.83 ERA over 18 appearances in his rookie season. He finished 2009 with a 4-8 record, 3.87 ERA and 1.51 WHIP.

 

The Marlins and LHP Renyel Pinto avoided arbitration Monday by agreeing to a one-year contract.

 

The financial terms have not yet been disclosed, but Pinto is surely looking at a raise. The southpaw posted a 3.23 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 58/45 K/BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings last season while earning the league minimum.

Hopefully we're able to avoid a lot of arbitration hearings this year. It's a good sign that deals are getting done.

Pinto is getting $1,075,000. Via Miami Herald.

 

Which is more than Matt Thornton, Guerrier, Crain, Wheeler, and a number of more relievers who had better resumes. He's making $125,000 less than Heath Bell, who absolutely destroys him in production. I am very surprised at this number. It's 15-20% higher than I thought it was going to be. Relief pitcher inflation is going up big time. Which is good as middleman have been undervalued once they've gotten to year 4 for years (for perspective, Kevin Gregg his first year with the Marlins got $550k in year 4), but it's surprising Pinto is one of them pushing the salaries up as he does not have a fantastic resume. Just a solid one.

do you think pinto will get traded??

 

Nope. Because the options to replace him are Hunter Jones (who we got for Hermida and Boston's # 32 prospect or whatever), and Tankeresley who hasn't pitched in a long time. Behind them, are Jennings and Voss but they need at least another season or two in the minors. And it's to early to convert West/Miller into a reliever. Got to keep starting them.

 

This organization is hurting on lefties right now. They can't move him despite his walkitis, because when it comes down to it. He's frustrating, but he has bouts of dominance and overall usually gets the job done even if gives up two walks.

oh okay. i just assumed that since he got such a pay raise they'd be looking to trade him for cheaper options but i guess we really don't have many options at this point unless tankersley miraculously becomes a solid reliever again
