Percival Return Will Cause Roster Crunch

MLB.com's Bill Chastain writes of an impending Rays roster crunch.  Closer Troy Percival can come off the DL Friday.  Percival's replacement, Grant Balfour, doesn't deserve a demotion.  He's out of options, and the Rays would have to sneak him through waivers to get him back to Triple A.  Balfour did clear waivers in April.  Given his situation and success this year, perhaps we can add Balfour to our Reliever Market list. 

The Rays acquired Balfour from the Brewers for Seth McClung last July.  He's endured all kinds of injury problems but seems on track in '08.  DRays Bay suggests keeping Balfour and either cutting Gary Glover or trading Jason Hammel.
