From the Wire … Cubs Re-Sign Shawn Camp

According to multiple reports, the Cubs have re-signed Shawn Camp to a one-year contract. The deal will pay Camp $1.35 million in 2013 and the one-year contract includes a performance-based incentive package worth an additional $200,000.

With the addition of Shawn Camp, the Cubs 40-man roster stands at 39 players.

Shawn Camp was solid in his first season with the Cubs. Camp posted a 3-6 record in a career-high 80 appearances (77 2/3 innings) with a 3.59 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Camp picked up a couple of saves and was the primary right-handed setup man to Carlos Marmol. The Cubs stated early on in the off-season that they wanted Camp back in the fold for the 2013 season.

Rumors have suggested that if the Cubs are able to move Carlos Marmol this winter then Camp could be used in the ninth inning to close out games.
