Percival Comeback?

According to Ken Rosenthal, former Angels and Tigers closer Troy Percival may make a comeback attempt.  Percival’s agent says the chances are 50/50, and that he was clocked at 97 recently.  As Rosenthal says, someone will give him a shot if he does come back.  Percival will likely decide today, and he’ll call the Angels first.

Percival turns 38 in August.  He received an ill-advised two-year, $12MM deal from Detroit prior to the 2005 season, and ended up pitching 25 innings over the life of the contract. 

I want to somehow work in Percival’s hilarious exchange with Sam Walker and his associate in the book Fantasyland, but it’s unprintable.  Check it out though.
