Camp finds home in Seattle
The Seattle Mariners have signed free-agent relievers Kuo Hong-chih and Shawn Camp to one-year contracts in a move to bolster their bullpen, the team said on Monday.
Financial terms were not released.
Kuo, who in 2010 became the first Taiwanese to make a MLB All-Star team, went 1-2 had a 9.00 earned run average in 40 games last season while hampered by elbow and anxiety problems.
The left-hander, 30, had spent his entire seven-year Major League career with the Dodgers before being released in the off-season.
Camp, 36, appeared in a team-high 67 games for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2011, posting a 6-3 record and 4.21 earned run average.
