From the Wire … Cubs Ink Shawn Camp to a Minor League Deal

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.
