Salas coming?

15

August

Nothing official from the Rays yet on the examination of closer Troy Percival's sprained right knee, but there's word that Juan Salas is headed to Texas in case a replacement is needed.

Salas, who missed spring training due to lengthy visa issues, has been pitching well at Triple-A Durham.

Given that Percival was on crutches and his knee was in a brace leaving Oakland on Thursday, and that he's 39 and already been sidelined twice with other leg problems, it seems likely he will be headed back to the DL.
