    Troy Percival Signs With the Rays


    Six months ago, Troy Percival was out of baseball.

    Now, he is on the verge of signing a two-year, $8 million contract with the Rays, according to major-league sources.
    The deal will contain a series of escalators that could push the total value of the package to more than $10 million, sources say.

    Percival took a physical in Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    Percival, 38, is joining the Rays for two reasons — the chance to close and the opportunity to reunite with manager Joe Maddon, who was the Angels' bench coach when Percival was the team's star closer.

    The Yankees were willing to pay Percival a higher salary, sources say, but they wanted him as a set-up man for closer Mariano Rivera.

    And all of a sudden, the Rays seem to be going in the right direction.

    Unfortunately, they are still in the AL East, so 3rd place is the best they can realistically hope.
