2012 MLB Free Agency: Cubs Sign MR Shawn Camp To Minor League Deal

According to Carrie Muskat of Cubs.com, the Chicago Cubs have signed reliever RHP Shawn Camp to a minor league deal:

Camp previously played for the Seattle Mariners, earned $750,000 on a major league deal. His 2011 season did go as well as hoped, though, as the then-35-year-old pitching 66.1 inning with his highest ERA (4.21) of the last three years as well as the lowest strikeout rate (11.0%) of his career.

With almost 500 innings under his belt, the veteran Camp adds extra depth to a projected Cubs bullpen already bolstered with former starters such as Carlos Marmol, Kerry Wood, James Russell and possibly Casey Coleman.
