Matthew Rendall will move to the Motor City next year after signing a 4-year deal worth nearly $8.6 million a year.
The former Calgary Inferno walked away from the team after winning his second Bull Cup championship there, opting out of the remaining three years of his contract.
Rendall was 10-8 through 22 starts this year, with an ERA of 4.09. While he was hardly the key to Calgary’s success, he played a role in the rotation and put in solid innings.
The Detroit Motorheads will likely promote him to pitch behind former New York Dragons starter William Febres, who signed with the club just three days ago.
