Percival says he thinks he’s out

The Rays still say they haven’t finalized their roster, as there are still some last-minute decisions to be made, but there are other indications about where they’re going.
Troy Percival said he doesn’t think he’ll be on the ALDS roster. As was the case with Edwin Jackson yesterday, the Rays would not confirm that.
Either way, it looks like David Price is just about locked in at this point, and the Rays will go with 10 pitchers.
In other news, Carl Crawford will bat 5th or 6th tomorrow, though he hopes to convince Joe Maddon to move him back up to 2nd during the series.
Also, Jason Hammel and John Jaso have been told they will not be on the first-round roster.
