KODAK, Tenn. - The Tennessee Smokies, Double-A minor league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, announce this afternoon that INF Matt Camp and RHP Oswaldo Martinez have been added to the team's active roster in advance of their series finale with the Chattanooga Lookouts. In the corresponding move for Martinez, LHP Brent Ebinger has been sent to the Low-A Peoria Chiefs. All moves are immediate, with Camp and Martinez being available for tonight's 7:15 game.

The Smokies roster is now at 24 active players, which is the Southern League maximum.

Camp, 27, rejoins the Smokies after being placed on the suspended list on June 28 for undisclosed reasons. He played in six games with Tennessee, hitting .211 (4-for-19) with three doubles. The Gastonia, NC native started the 2011 campaign with the Triple-A Iowa Cubs. Camp was drafted by Chicago in the 13th round of the 2006 MLB-First Year Player Draft.

Martinez comes back to Tennessee for the second time in 2011. In his first stint, he had no record with a 1.50 ERA in two relief appearances. The 22-year-old was signed by the Cubs as a non-drafted free agent in 2006.

Ebinger, 22, had no record in with a 9.00 ERA in only two innings pitched in Tennessee. He was the Cubs' 32nd round draft pick in the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
