Marlins Sign Anibal Sanchez, Clay Hensley

      There will be no arbitration acrimony involving the Marlins and any unsigned players in February.

 Anibal                                                                                             The team on Tuesday signed their two remaining arbitration-eligible players, with starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez and reliever Clay Hensley working out 1-year deals. Sanchez agreed for $3.7 million and up to $50,000 in performance incentives. Hensley agreed for $1.4 million, plus incentives worth up to $50,000.

        Tuesday's signings coming one day after the Marlins worked out deals with two other arbitration-eligible pitchers, relievers Leo Nunez ($3.65 million) and Edward Mujica ($800,000).

       Had the Marlins not reached agreement with those players, the sides would have exchanged salary proposals, with an independent arbitrator choosing one or the other following a hearing in February.
