A's claim Bankston; Percival, Rays close to deal

The Oakland A's grabbed former Biscuit Wes Bankston off waivers Wednesday. The Royals, who designated Bankston for assignment last week, also released Montgomery native Craig Brazell. Brazell won the minor-league home run championship this year.

The Rays are close to signing reliever Troy Percival to a two-year deal worth $8 million, according to Fox Sports. Percival was 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA in 34 games with the Cardinals in 2007.
