Percival "Serious" About Rays

Lancaster

Percival's agent, Paul Cohen, said Tuesday that the Rays are among about 10 teams interested in the 38-year-old pitcher, who went 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA in 34 appearances for St. Louis this season after sitting out nearly two years with forearm trouble.

While plenty of teams need bullpen help, the Rays could have an edge because of Percival's close relationship with Joe Maddon. The two spent 10 seasons together with the Angels as Percival racked up 316 of his 324 career saves.

"We wouldn't be having serious conversations with them if Troy wasn't serious," Cohen said. "He has a tremendous respect for Joe."

Awesome, he's been on my wishlist and I'm glad to see that the Halo Effect is working a bit.
