Street (knee) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

By moving Street to the 60-day DL, the Angels were able to open up a 40-man roster spot for Daniel Wright, who was claimed off waivers from the Reds on Sunday. Since Street has already been ruled out for the season following knee surgery, the transaction is only a procedural move.

Street (knee) underwent season-ending surgery Wednesday, he announced via his personal Twitter account.

EDGE Analysis

Street underwent an arthroscopic procedure due to persistent medial pain in his right knee. The veteran will miss the remainder of 2016, but he's expected to be ready when next season opens in April. The 33-year-old Street closes the season with a disappointing 6.45 ERA and nine saves across 26 appearances (22.1 innings).

Street (knee) will have season-ending surgery on Wednesday and is expected back for the 2017 season, the Los Angeles Times' Bill Shaikin reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will indeed need arthroscopic surgery on his right knee because of persistent medial knee pain. Cam Bedrosian (finger) is also on the 15-day DL, leaving Fernando Salas as the closer for now. Bedrosian was more effective than Street when both pitchers were healthy, so while Street should be back for 2017, Bedrosian is likely to be a trendy pick to take over the closer role at some point next year.

Street is expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels have yet to officially say that Street will need surgery, but an announcement is expected in the coming days. If Street does have the surgery, the team expects that he'd be ready for the 2017 campaign. Street's performance for the 2016 season was disappointing to say the least, as he posted a 6.45 ERA and 1.93 WHIP over 22.1 innings.

Street is seeking a second opinion on his injured knee and may undergo season-ending surgery, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Street resumed throwing last week, but it appears his knee is not responding as hoped, and he may have to go under the knife. Expect the Angels to release an update on Street's status after his upcoming trip to the doctor.

Street (knee) has resumed throwing at the Angels' spring training facility in Arizona, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Street is scheduled to rejoin the Angels on Monday, at which point he'll be evaluated by team doctors. If the Angels determine Street has made enough progress in his recovery from inflammation in his right knee, the reliever could be cleared to throw off a found and face hitters in the next few days.

An MRI on Street's right knee showed inflammation but no structural damage. He received a cortisone injection to help calm the inflammation after being placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Cam Bedrosian, owner of a 0.90 ERA and 0.98 WHIP, took over the closer duties for Street and promptly struck out the side Tuesday to earn his first save. It is good to know that Street's injury is not more serious than initially believed, but he is still without a timetable to return, and Bedrosian appears to be well on his way to staking a permanent claim to the job.

Street (knee) was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Street is suffering from right knee inflammation, and will land on the disabled list for the second time this season after dealing with an oblique injury in May. In his place, Cam Bedrosian will likely assume the closing duties while Street is recovering. This comes days after manager Mike Scioscia gave Street a vote of confidence after blowing his third save in 12 opportunities Sunday. Street had been having a rough year, and this injury could give him a chance to clear his head before he rejoins the team.

Street received a vote of confidence from manager Mike Scioscia, who stated he isn't considering removing Street from the closer's role, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Street has been awful this year, as he blew his third save in 12 opportunities Sunday and saw his ERA jump to 6.45 after he surrendered five runs on four hits, including two homers, in a loss to the Red Sox. Cam Bedrosian owns a 0.92 ERA in 43 relief appearances and would make sense as the replacement should Street lose his job, but Scioscia's comments suggest Street will hold onto the role for at least a little while longer.

Street picked up his eighth save as he worked around a hit for a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against Texas.

EDGE Analysis

This was Street's first appearance since leaving with a hamstring injury July 10 against Baltimore. It was well-timed with the All-Star break, as he showed no lingering symptoms. This was Street's first save opportunity since June 21, and with a 4.82 ERA, it's hard to count on Street for consistent saves even when the Angels are winning games.
