Mariners sign Camp, Kuo

The Seattle Mariners have signed relief Chih Kuo to one-year contracts.

Camp appeared in a team-high 67 games for the Toronto Blue Jays last season, posting a 6-3 record with one save and a 4.21 ERA. Camp induced 12 ground-ball double plays, tops among American League relievers.

The 36-year-old Camp has appeared in 432 career games with Kansas City (2004-05), Tampa Bay (2006-07) and Toronto (2008-11), recording a 25-26 mark with 10 saves and a 4.40 ERA.

Kuo, 30, went 1-2 with a 9.00 ERA in 40 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers last season. In 2010, Kuo became the first-ever Taiwanese All-Star after going 3-2 with 12 saves and a 1.20 ERA.

In 218 career games (14 starts) with the Dodgers, Kuo is 13-17 with 13 saves and a 3.73 ERA.

To make room on the 40-man roster, catcher Chris Gimenez and outfielder Mike Wilson were designated for assignment.
