Percival To Join Rays
Reliever Troy Percival is almost guaranteed to sign a 2-year, $8M deal with the Tampa Bay Rays in the coming days. Troy will join ex-Angel manager Joe Maddon over in Tampa, likely setting up Al Reyes or even stepping into the job come late in the year. The Rays are sure making some nice moves lately, as moving Delmon Young to Minnesota in order to acquire Matt Garza was a tremendous deal for Tampa.
The Rays will bolster a Kazmir, Shields, Garza big 3 coming into next year, a trio that could match up with pretty much any other club in the league.
