I heard they were ready to sign a compromise but the Twins looked at his medical records and determined that he was not suited for a 250-270 inning workload.
Where did you “hear” this?
Last year’s MLB IP leader was Justin Verlander, with 223 IP.
The last time a pitcher threw more than 230 was Clayton Kershaw in 2015. The last guy over 250 was Verlander in 2011. I doubt anyone throws 230 again. Ever.
