Cubs sign Mariners castoff Shawn Camp to minors deal

Released by the Mariners last week, reliever Shawn Camp has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Cubs.

Seattle cutting Camp was surprising because he signed a $750,000 deal just a month earlier and pitched reasonably well last season with a 4.21 ERA in 66 innings for the Blue Jays.

Now he’ll have to work his way back to the majors with a stint at Triple-A and Camp’s deal doesn’t include a spot on the 40-man roster, so the Cubs will need to clear space for a promotion if/when they decide he’s needed.

    Cubs got a bargain here. Camp’s a pretty good reliever.

    Good groundball / double play pitcher.
