Rays' Percival returns from DL before Yankees series opener
The 38-year-old right-hander, sidelined because of cartilage damage in his right knee, had been out since Aug. 14, when he limped off the mound after fielding a ninth-inning bunt at Oakland.
The Rays also recalled right-handed reliever Juan Salas from Double-A Montgomery and catcher John Jaso from Triple-A Durham.
