Thursday Hearing For Ankiel, Cardinals

According to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals and Rick Ankiel have a Thursday arbitration hearing scheduled.  If the hearing takes place, the arbitrators will decide whether Ankiel earns $3.3MM or $2.35MM in ’09.

Ankiel, a Scott Boras client, is eligible for free agency after the season.  He could be midseason trade bait if Colby Rasmus comes on strong.
