Notes:  The Cubs signed reliever Shawn Camp from the Seattle Mariners yesterday.  Camp was more than serviceable with the Blue Jays last year, I wasn’t the only one surprised about him being released, he was too “I was a little surprised,” Camp said about being released. “I was having a good spring, came in on a Major League deal. They decided to go in a different direction. They decided to go with youth. For me, it was kind of a shock. To tell you the truth, it doesn’t surprise me.  Trevor Miller was released by the Cubs as well, the 38 year old really didn’t have a spot in this organization once it was clear he wasn’t making the team.

The Cubs split a pair of games yesterday, winning 2-0 against the Padres and falling 3-2 to the Diamondbacks, tremendous effort from the Cubs arms yesterday.
