According to multiple reports, the Cubs signed reliever Shawn Camp to a minor league deal on Sunday after he was released by the Seattle Mariners last week. Camp has reported to HoHoKam Park and is expected to compete for a spot in the Cubs’ bullpen over the last nine days of Spring Training.
The deal the Cubs inked Shawn Camp to is a minor league deal. Camp was not added to the Cubs’ 40-man roster. Shawn Camp signed a Major League deal with the Mariners in the off-season after spending the last four seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays. The 36-year old right-hander posted a 6-3 record with a 4.21 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP in 67 games for Toronto in 2011. Camp finished 23 of those games.
Shawn Camp played for Dale Sveum in the minors and is excited about having the opportunity to play for him again.
