Street (back) is recovering on schedule from his lat strain and he's hoping to resume throwing by the end of March, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Street visited Dr. Steve Yoon in Los Angeles on Monday and received the pleasant news. He'll continue to progress along his rehab until he is able to resume throwing. The 33-year-old is set to miss the beginning of the season and depending on how he returns from the injury, he could no longer be an option to close games for the Angels.

Angels GM Billy Eppler says Street has a lat strain and will not throw for 3-4 weeks, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The news is a huge blow to Street's chances of being ready for Opening Day, much less winning the closer job. He left Friday's Cactus League contest with apparent irritation and now faces a steep road to recovery. Street dealt with a variety of injuries last year before undergoing knee surgery this offseason, definitive signs that the 33-year-old may be a risky pick in any draft format. Look for Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Andrew Bailey to compete for the closer role as spring camp continues.

Street exited Monday's game due to experiencing right triceps irritation and will undergo an MRI.

EDGE Analysis

Street's triceps discomfort forced him two leave the game after facing just two batters. A negative result from the MRI would be a devastating blow to his chances to win the Angels' closer role that he was set to compete for during spring training.

Street left Friday's Cactus League game with an undisclosed injury, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Street faced only two batters before being forced to exit the contest. It's unclear what caused the departure, but updates are likely to come within due time. The 33-year-old is competing for the closer role with Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Andrew Bailey.

Street (knee) is making his 2017 Cactus League debut Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off a 6.45 ERA during (surprise) an injury-shortened 2016, Street is battling for the closer role with Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Andrew Bailey, among others. His body of work and name recognition may land him the job initially, but it's wise for fantasy players to remain skeptical, especially considering his health issues and the talent Bedrosian boasts when healthy.

Street (knee) was spotted at Angels' camp Monday. He will look to bounce back from a knee injury and reclaim his closer job this spring.

EDGE Analysis

Street turned in one of his worst seasons as a pro in 2016, posting a 6.45 ERA in an injury-shortened season. It was quite the drop off in production even in his age 33 season, so we have to take his knee injury into consideration when evaluating the lost season. It was already reported that Street had the inside track on regaining his closer role that he vacated last season, so as long as he shows up to camp and shows good health, it should be his job to lose. No official closer has been named, but Street has to be considered the early favorite heading into Cactus League action.

Street (knee) may have the inside track to begin the season as the Angels' closer due to his experience in the role and that his struggles in 2016 were likely influenced by injuries, the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Angels manager Mike Scioscia has already indicated that Street will have to compete for the ninth-inning job this spring, while Cam Bedrosian and Andrew Bailey are positioned to push him in Arizona. Prior to undergoing season-ending knee surgery, Street was shelved by an oblique injury, and the two ailments limited him to just 26 appearances in 2016, while he compiled an inflated 6.45 ERA and 1.93 WHIP while converting nine of his 12 save chances.

Street is expected to compete with Cam Bedrosian and Andrew Bailey for the closer role in spring training, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Street is set to make $9 million in 2017, but manager Mike Scioscia implied that the high price tag will not lock Street into closing duties. The 33-year-old right-hander battled an oblique injury during the first half and ultimately underwent season-ending knee surgery in August, making just 26 appearances for the Angels. He struggled to a 6.45 ERA when on the mound and both Bedrosian and Bailey fared well when giving an opportunity in the ninth inning. It could be a tight face throughout the spring.

Street (knee) was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Street underwent season ending knee surgery in late August, but he's expected to be ready to go for the 2017 season. That being said, general manager Billy Eppler didn't guarantee that the veteran would simply be handed the closer's job out of spring training, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register. Cam Bedrosian is reportedly in the mix for the role as well, so Street will need to prove his health and abilities prior to Opening Day in order to maintain his pole position in the Angels bullpen.

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.
