The Chicago Cubs elected to bring 37-year old reliever Shawn Camp back for a second season. The deal is for one year and is worth $1.35 million, plus up to an additional $200,000 in incentives according to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com. Camp led the Majors (tied with three other pitchers) in appearances last season with 80.

Camp was signed by the Seattle Mariners in February of 2012, but was released before the start of the season in what was more of a roster paring move than anything else. He finished the 2012 season with 77.2 IP, 3.59 ERA, 3.69 FIP, 4.08 xFIP, 54 K and 21 BB. He holds a career ground ball rate of 54%.
