Phillies Sign Shawn Camp

The Phillies signed reliever Shawn Camp to a minor league deal, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports:

Camp, 38 next week, posted a 7.04 ERA, 5.1 K/9, 3.5 BB/9, 2.74 HR/9, and 48.8% groundball rate in 23 innings for the Cubs this year before getting released in July. He then signed a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks and posted a 2.42 ERA, 7.7 K/9, 2.0 BB/9, and 0.81 HR/9 in 22 1/3 Triple-A frames.

In 2012 with the Cubs, Camp tied for the MLB lead with 80 appearances, compiling a 3.59 ERA, but his usage may have taken a toll on him in 2013 as his average fastball velocity dropped from 87.6 to 86.3 miles per hour in 2013.
