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.

Sorry it was a joke.Kind of a parody of how Boston is holding up the Graterol deal after looking at his medical records and determining he might not throw 150 to 170 innings.

The whole "precedent" rationale is weak at best. Regardless, taking Berrios to arb over$375K, whether over "precedent" or not, is still, IMO, penny wise and pound foolish.

I'm sure all will be forgiven if the Twins make amends the next time the parties agree to sit down and talk extension. For instance, the Twins could offer, say....$60.375M over six years with a player option.

 

How can you doubt, when the FO is on such a roll?!

Color me surprised. When was the last time the Twins went all the way to a hearing? I vaguely remember a story about Torri Hunter signing a contract literally outside the courtroom door. Maybe Garza? Or Perkins?

Doesn't look good for Berrios staying with the Twins past the arbitration years.

Falvine went to the Arb hearing with Gibson in their first offseason.
