The Chicago Cubs have signed right handed pitcher Shawn Camp to a Minor League deal according to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune. The 36-year old was released by the Mariners a few days ago.
“I was a little surprised,” Camp said. “I was having a good spring and came in on a major league deal. They just decided to go in a different direction, decided to go with youth. For me, it was kind of a shock, but to tell you the truth, it doesn't surprise me.”
Camp was 6-3 with a 4.21 ERA in 66.1 innings last season with the Blue Jays. He also had a 0.4 HR/9, 3.0 BB/9 and 4.3 SO/9 during 2011.
