While Percival is out, manager Joe Maddon plans to "use the whole group" in save situations instead of using a specific closer.

RHP Troy Percival does not need surgery on his right knee and expects to be pitching again in less than two weeks.

"The prognosis was basically that if I got it done it was going to be October (until he was recovered), and without it, it's very feasible that (he'll be back within) two weeks - I've just got to deal with pain and go. It's going to do any more damage,'' Percival said. "Once I'm good to go, I'll be out there. ... The pain is tolerable.''

Percival said he will be get back on the mound in four or five days and expects to be ready when eligible to come off the DL, on Aug. 30. He said he expected to have surgery when he went to see Dr. Koco Eaton this morning but was pleased with the outcome.
