Cubs To Sign Shawn Camp

The Cubs agreed to sign Shawn Camp to a one-year contract, the team announced. Agent Dave Meier represents Camp, who will earn a base salary of $1.35MM plus up to $200K in performance bonuses, according to MLB.com's Carrie Muskat (on Twitter).

Camp, who turned 37 yesterday, pitched out of the Cubs’ bullpen in 2012, appearing in a career-high 80 games. He tied for the MLB lead in appearances and posted a 3.59 ERA with 6.3 K/9, 2.4 BB/9 and a 47.4% ground ball rate in 77 2/3 innings. The Mariners signed Camp in February, but released him toward the end of Spring Training at which point the Cubs signed him to a minor league deal.
