Shawn Camp cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week and the Cubs have released the 37-year-old reliever.

Camp led the National League with 80 appearances last season, throwing 78 innings with a 3.59 ERA and 54/21 K/BB ratio, but didn’t generate much interest as a free agent and re-signed with the Cubs for $1.35 million this winter.

He coughed up 18 runs in 23 innings to pitch his way off the roster, but with a combined 3.62 ERA in 335 innings during the past five seasons he should be able to find another opportunity soon enough.
