One of the key MLB players who has a contract expiring at the end of the 2012 season is Miami Marlins starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez. The 28-year-old right-hander is currently on a one-year $8 million contract and will likely land a lucrative deal in free agency.
Sanchez, who threw a no-hitter for the Marlins in 2006, is sure to be a hot commodity. For his career, Sanchez sports a very respectable 3.71 ERA to go along with a 40-38 win/loss record.
Considering the fact that Edwin Jackson had a career ERA of 4.46 and got a one-year $11 million deal from the Washington Nationals this past offseason, it would be logical to assume that Sanchez may fall in that same pay grade.
Here are 12 MLB teams that may get in on the Sanchez sweepstakes after the 2012 season.
