Huston Street RP LAA 4 Days

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that a trade sending Padres closer Huston Street to the Angels is being finalized.

It's unclear at the moment what the return package would be, but Taylor Lindsay has been mentioned and was scratched from Friday's lineup at Triple-A Salt Lake. It sounds as though the deal will get done soon.

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels and Padres continue to work on a deal for Huston Street.

ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that the Angels are close to finalizing a deal to acquire Huston Street from the Padres.

There'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.

Huston Street was named to the National League All-Star team as replacement for teammate Tyson Ross who is pitching on Sunday.

Street is certainly deserving of the honor, as he's having one of the finest season's in his career. The 30-year-old has converted 24 of his 25 save chances while posting a 1.09 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 34/7 K/BB ratio over 33 innings of work.

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

Street served up a game-tying solo shot to Michael Morse in the ninth inning and then the Padres fell in the 10th. The right-hander has been otherwise excellent this season and should be an attractive name at the trade deadline.

Huston 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.

Street 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.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Padres are receiving trade interest in Huston Street and Joaquin Benoit.

It'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.

Huston Street worked around a one-out double and a single to grab his 20th save of the season in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

It was about as tense a situation as Street has seen in nearly a month, but he was able to wriggle free for the save. The right-hander has had a great season, as he now sports a 0.96 ERA, a 0.79 WHIP, and a 30/7 K/BB ratio in 28 innings.

Huston Street worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning to convert his 19th save of the season in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Mariners.

He also struck out a batter in his first save since June 4. The 30-year-old closer is having a sensational year, going 19-for-19 in save chances with a 1.00 ERA, 0.74 WHIP, and 30/7 K/BB ratio. So long as he remains healthy, Street will be one of the league's top fantasy relievers. San Diego has all sorts of problems as an organization, but they aced the eighth and ninth innings with Joaquin Benoit and Street.
