Huston Street Suffers Minor Setback in Rehab


Closer Huston Street suffered a minor setback in his rehab when he experienced pain in his strained left calf while jogging. Street was scheduled to pitch Friday for Single-A Lake Elsinore, but was scratched for precautionary reasons. The closer is to meet with the team in Los Angeles on Monday, according to Corey Brock on

Street has been lights-out all season converting all 21 of his save opportunities.

The 2005 Rookie of the Year has appeared in 37 games for the Friars compiling a 2-0 record with a 0.75 ERA and 21 saves.

This is the right-hander’s second stint on the 15-day disabled list after being placed on it earlier this year for a strained right lat muscle.

In July, the Padres and Street agreed to a $14 million, two-year contact extension through 2014.

With Street  unavailable to close, manager Bud Black has elected to go for the closer-by-committee route with Luke Gregerson getting the majority of the load.
