The Phils needed to make room on the Triple-A Lehigh Valley roster for Jason Marquis. Camp allowed two runs over 3 1/3 frames for the big club this and posted a 3.79 ERA over 19 relief innings at Lehigh Valley. The 38-year-old should be able to land a minor league deal elsewhere.

Phillies recalled RHP Shawn Camp from Triple-A Lehigh Valley

Camp takes the spot of Jonathan Pettibone on the active roster, who was demoted to Triple-A after a lousy start against the Rockies on Friday. The 38-year-old Camp appeared in five games in at Lehigh Valley, posting a 3.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 4/3 K/BB ratio in six innings. He'll work in middle relief.

Phillies reassigned RHP Shawn Camp to minor league camp.

Camp, a non-roster invitee this spring, allowed just one run with a 7/0 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings during Grapefruit League action. However, it wasn't enough for him to win a bullpen spot.

Cubs designated RHP Shawn Camp for assignment.

Camp pitched well for the Cubs last season and entered this year as a setup man. He pitched terribly, though, perhaps in part because of his overuse last season, posting a 7.04 ERA over 26 appearances. Someone will take a shot on him as a middle reliever if he refuses an assignment to Triple-A.
