The Cubs signed their lone free agent, reliever Shawn Camp, to a one-year deal Monday. Camp, who turned 37 over the weekend, returns to the team after going 3-6 with a 3.59 ERA and a pair of saves in 80 relief appearances (77.2 innings) last year.
In 2012, the right-hander recorded a career-high 18 holds and struck out 54 batters, walking just 21. Camp joined the team at the end of Spring Training after being released by the Mariners on March 23. He has a career 28-32 record with 12 saves and a 4.29 ERA in 512 relief appearances with Kansas City (2004-05), Tampa Bay (2006-07), Toronto (2008-11) and the Cubs.
