Orioles manager Dave Trembley suggested Monday that George Sherrill and Chris Ray could share closing duties next season.
"I don't think there will be competition,'' Trembley said. "I think I'm going to be afforded the luxury of having two guys that have done it... I don't think it's inconceivable that we could somehow share that role." It's way too early to buy much into that comment, but it does show that the Orioles have faith in Chris Ray being healthy to start the season. He is coming off Tommy John surgery. We'd still consider Sherrill the frontrunner to take the job full time.
If Percival is not ready for Opening Day, the Rays would likely go with a bullpen-by-committee arrangement.
"If Percy's well, it's his job," said manager Joe Maddon.
