NewsAngels acquired RHP Huston Street and RHP Trevor Gott from the Padres for second baseman Taylor Lindsey, shortstop Jose Rondon, RHP R.J. Alvarez and RHP Elliot Morris.
ImpactEven though Joe Smith has done such a nice job in the ninth, the Angels wanted a closer to strengthen their bullpen as a whole. Enter Street, who has been exceptional this year after giving up 12 homers in 56 2/3 innings in 2013. He has a 1.09 ERA so far in 2014, with just three homers allowed in 33 innings. His addition makes Smith and Jason Grilli droppable in mixed leagues. Joaquin Benoit will take over as San Diego's closer. Gott, a 2013 sixth-round pick, projects as a middle reliever or perhaps a setup man in the majors. He has a 3.56 ERA and a 42/18 K/BB in 43 innings between high-A and Double-A this year.

ImpactThere's no word yet on what the Padres will receive in return. Street would surely slide into the closer role for the Halos, with Joe Smith going back to a more suitable setup role. Street has put up a nifty 1.09 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 34/7 K/BB ratio over 33 innings of work this season for the Padres. He's making $7 million in 2014 and has a $7 million club option on his contract for 2015.

NewsHuston Street blew his first save of the season Saturday in the Padres' loss to the Giants.

NewsHuston Street worked around a leadoff single in the ninth inning to convert his 22nd save and close out Monday's 1-0 win over the Reds.
ImpactStreet needed only 10 pitches to finish off Cincinnati. He's thrown just 37 pitches in hurling four straight shutout innings, all saves. The 30-year-old closer ranks fifth in the National League in saves and boasts an amazing 0.90 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 32/7 K/BB rate over 30 frames. With a bevy of contenders slobbering over San Diego's bullpen, there's a decent chance that both Huston Street and Joaquin Benoit will be traded in the next 31 days.

ImpactIt's no surprise, of course, as the Padres will be sellers, teams are always looking for bullpen help and both Street (0.96 ERA) and Benoit (1.42 ERA) are having great years. They also both have relatively reasonable contracts, with Street making $7 million this season (with a $7 million club option for 2015) and Benoit making $6 million this season and $8.5 million in 2015 (with an $8 million club option for 2016). Heyman lists the Tigers, Angels, Blue Jays, Orioles, Brewers and Marlins among contending teams thought to be interested in added relief help.

NewsPadres general manager Josh Byrnes said that while Huston Street remains the club's closer for 2014, the role for 2015 is "to be determined."
San Diego Union-Tribune
ImpactThe team has a mutual option on Street for 2015 for a relatively reasonable $7 million. However, they also just signed Joaquin Benoit to a two-year, $14 million contract, a deal that also includes an $8 million option for 2016 that vests if he finishes 55 games in 2015. Obviously, the option has no chance of vesting unless Benoit is the closer throughout the 2015 campaign. "Street is still our closer," Byrnes said. "Huston has done it very well for a long time. Benoit has done it for four years. Huston is a pro. Nothing changes here. We do have a decision for 2015. Nothing is guaranteed for 2015."

The 30-year-old had a 2.70 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 56 2/3 innings this past season despite allowing 12 home runs. He'll likely enter spring as the team's closer, with Benoit serving in a setup role.

ImpactThe Tigers are looking to upgrade their bullpen at the trade deadline and have made "initial inquiries" with the Padres on the availability of Street and Luke Gregerson. Street, 29, has a 4.02 ERA and 16 saves this season and is signed through 2014.
Street owns high ERA, low strikeout rate | 07/10/2013 9:23 PM
NewsHuston Street owns a 4.30 ERA and has struck out just 16 batters over 29 1/3 innings.
ImpactStreet entered the season with a 9.2 K/9 rate, but he's struck out just 4.9 per nine innings in 2013. In addition, Street's 1.23 WHIP is the highest of his career. He's 0-4, but has been charged with just one blown save. Because of name recognition and a big contract, we suspect Street's job is safe, but he's been of the baseball's shakiest closers this season.

NewsHuston Street allowed two runs in a non-save situation and was charged with the loss Sunday against the Dodgers.

NewsHuston Street earned his 14th save of the year Monday as the Padres beat the Giants 5-3.
ImpactStreet entered with a 5-3 lead in the 13th inning and stranded Gregor Blanco, who reached on a single. Street isn't striking anyone out -- he has 13 over 24 games -- and has tossed only four perfect innings in 2013.

NewsHuston Street allowed a run on two hits Saturday, but escaped with his 12th save of the year against the Diamondbacks.
ImpactWith one out, Cliff Pennington reached on infield single. Two batters later, he was doubled in by Gerardo Parra. Street next induced a game-ending fly out from Didi Gregorius. It was Street's first appearance since the Padres activated him from the disabled list (strained left calf). The veteran closer has been highly susceptible to damage this year, going 0-3 with a 4.64 ERA. Because of his name, Street presumably has plenty of job security.
Padres activate Huston Street from 15-day DL | 06/14/2013 7:09 PM
NewsPadres activated RHP Huston Street from the 15-day disabled list.
ImpactThe Padres were pleased with how Street threw the ball during a minor league rehab assignment, and he appears to be completely recovered from his strained left calf. The Padres' closer has converted 11 of his first 12 save chances while posting a 4.43 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 13/8 K/BB ratio in 20 1/3 innings.

NewsHuston Street (calf) will begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday with High-A Lake Elsinore.
ImpactStreet was cleared for the assignment after throwing a simulated game Monday with no issues. "Threw the ball well, his calf seems to be fine," Padres manager Bud Black said. Wednesday's appearance could be the only one Street needs before being activated if all goes well, possibly putting him in line for activation on Friday, the first day he's eligible.
Padres closer Street goes on 15-day DL | 06/01/2013 7:48 PM
NewsPadres placed RHP Huston Street on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left calf.
ImpactManager Bud Black said the plan is for Luke Gregerson to get most of the work in the ninth. Dale Thayer will serve as the fallback. Street was 11-for-12 saving games this season, but he had allowed seven homers in 20 1/3 innings and taken three losses. The two weeks off might be a good thing for him.

Huston Street gives up seventh homer | 05/30/2013 1:34 AM
NewsAfter entering a tie game against the Mariners, Huston Street gave up his seventh homer of the year to Jason Bay on Wednesday.
ImpactStreet was in line for the loss after giving up the run in the top of the ninth, but the Padres bailed him out and went on to win in 10. Street has allowed just 17 hits in 20 1/3 innings, but 40 percent of them have been homers. He's still 11-for-12 in save chances, so the Padres have no reason to remove him from the closer's role.
Street notches 11th save Monday against Cards | 05/21/2013 1:27 AM
NewsHuston Street notched his 11th save Monday by tossing a perfect ninth as the Padres beat the Cardinals 4-2.
ImpactThis was Street's first perfect complete inning since May 8 against the Marlins. Street has been uncharacteristically wild this season and that has led to an 0-3 record, 4.19 ERA and 1.24 WHIP (19 points above his career mark). If Street can improve upon his 13/8 K/BB rate (over 20 appearances), he'll have another good season as San Diego's stopper. If he doesn't iron out his control issues, it could be a long year. Street's stuff simply isn't good enough (he's allowed six homers in 2013) to compensate for extra base runners.

NewsHuston Street blew his first save of the 2013 season on Saturday night, surrendering a two-out, two-run homer to Rays third baseman Evan Longoria.
ImpactIt's a devastating loss for the Padres, who clawed back from a 6-2 deficit to take a 7-6 lead into the ninth. Street retired the first two hitters he faced before walking Ben Zobrist to set up Longoria's dramatics. With the loss, Street falls to 0-2 on the season with a 4.91 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.

Huston Street gets second save | 04/16/2013 1:50 AM
NewsHuston Street recorded his second save of the season Monday, tossing a scoreless inning in a win over the Dodgers.
ImpactStreet gave up a leadoff single to Jerry Hairston Jr. to start the ninth but then quickly disposed of the next three batters. It was the right-hander's first save chance since April 4, as the Padres picked up just their third win of the season. Street should be a fine fantasy closer this season.
Huston Street gives up two homers, takes loss | 04/13/2013 1:36 AM
NewsHuston Street took a loss after giving up two homers in the ninth Friday against the Rockies.
ImpactStreet entered a tie game and gave up back-to-back solo homers to Dexter Fowler and Josh Rutledge. He's allowed three homers in three innings this season after giving up a total of two in 39 innings last year. It's probably a fluke, but with the Padres bringing in the fences, he shouldn't have been expected to have such a good home run rate again anyway.

NewsHuston Street has converted his only save chance this season, giving up one run over two appearances.
ImpactStreet gave up a solo homer but nailed down a save on April 4, and his next appearance didn't come until a week later. It's not surprising given that the Padres are off to a 2-7 start, but save opportunities have a way of coming in bunches. Street will make for a fine fantasy closer this season as long as he stays healthy.
