Mariners release Shawn Camp

The Mariners just announced they have released veteran right-handed reliever Shawn Camp, a 36-year-old signed as a free agent last month. He had been with Toronto since 2008, appearing in 67 games for the Blue Jays last season.
He put up decent numbers with the Mariners this spring, allowing two earned runs in 8.1 innings, including 2.1 shutout innings on Monday when he relieved Jason Vargas in the first inning.
But with 15 pitchers on the roster this morning, some cuts had to start being made with the team leaving for Japan tomorrow. There are now 14 pitchers on the roster after the release of Camp.
The M’s now have 38 players on the Major League spring roster. They can take 30 to Japan tomorrow. Injured Adam Moore and Franklin Gutierrez are not expected to go. So that means decisions have to be made on six other players by tomorrow.
