Salas coming?



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.
