Rays | Percival returns to full-time closing

The Bradenton Journal's Roger Mooney reports Tampa Bay Rays CL Troy Percival has returned to the closer role. Percival watched video of how he pitched in Baltimore and realized he was using his changeup far more than he normally does and that he was pitching away from lefties. With left-handers batting .476 against Percival, Rays manager Joe Maddon kept Percival away from lefties. Percival struck out a lefty in his outing Sunday, May 17.
