Huston Street collected his fourth save of the season by hurling a perfect ninth inning in San Diego's 5-4 victory over Colorado on Monday.
He struck out a batter and still only needed 10 pitches to shut off the lights against his former team. Halfway through the season's first month, Street has been one of the game's best fantasy closers. He's now 4-for-4 in save opportunities and hasn't allowed a run in five appearances, posting a 4/1 K/BB rate. Three of those four saves have been of the one-run-lead variety, which San Diego seems to specialize in producing. Apr 15 - 2:05 AM

Huston Street collected his third save of the season as the Padres beat the Indians 2-1 in the second half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Street gave up a one-out single to Ryan Raburn and then issued a walk to Michael Brantley, but he danced around that threat of danger by retiring Yan Gomes and Asdrubal Cabrera for the final two outs of the game. Street is 3-for-3 in save opportunities this season with a 0.00 ERA.
Apr 9 - 7:33 PM

Huston Street pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Marlins to earn his second save of the season Sunday.

Street struck out one in his perfect inning of work. His strong start to the season paired with Joaquin Benoit coming out of the gate slowly should afford Street some leeway in his hold on the closer role should he stumble in the near future.
Apr 6 - 4:13 PM

Huston Street slammed the door on the Dodgers in the ninth inning on Sunday, preserving a 3-1 victory in their season opener.

The veteran closer needed just 11 pitches to dispose of Andre Ethier, Juan Uribe and A.J. Ellis in order, including a strikeout. With free agent acquisition Joaquin Benoit joining the Padres bullpen, Street will have to pitch well in order to keep a stranglehold on the ninth inning role, but so far so good.
Mar 30 - 11:05 PM

Huston Street (groin) will pitch in his first game of the spring on Saturday.

The Padres haven't determined whether it will be a Cactus League game or a minor league game. Street has been slowed by a minor groin ailment. He is expected to be ready for the start of the 2014 regular season and will open the year as San Diego's closer.
Mar 13 - 1:06 PM

Huston Street (groin) could throw a bullpen session Saturday.

Street will do some long-tossing Friday before it's determined whether he's ready for mound work. The Padres insist that the closer's groin ailment is minor, so he should be ready for game action next week if he can avoid setbacks.
Mar 7 - 12:08 PM

Huston Street (groin) played catch Wednesday.

There's still no timetable for Street's spring debut, but the injury doesn't appear serious. The team is just playing it safe with their closer. There's still no concern about his readiness for Opening Day, but the team has Joaquin Benoit as insurance in case Street doesn't progress as expected.
Mar 5 - 7:20 PM

Huston Street will not pitch this week due to a slight groin pull.

The Padres don't consider the ailment serious, but they're playing it safe by pushing the reliever back. Considering Street's lengthy injury history, it's a wise move. Barring a setback, this won't be anything that will threaten the closer's availability for Opening Day.
Mar 3 - 6:47 PM

Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said that while Huston Street remains the club's closer for 2014, the role for 2015 is "to be determined."

The 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 Padres aren't actively looking to move Huston Street in the wake of signing Joaquin Benoit, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports.

The Padres now have two pitchers who saved over 23 games last season, but the addition of Benoit doesn't necessarily spell the end of Street's time in San Diego. 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.

Huston Street will be away from the team for the next two games, as he returns to Texas to attend the funeral of his grandmother.

That makes Luke Gregerson the Padres primary ninth inning option for the first couple games of the week. For those speculating on saves, especially in daily formats, Gregerson looks like a very attractive option.

Huston Street slammed the door on the Rockies in the ninth inning on Sunday, retiring all three hitters he faced en route to his 29th save of the season.

Street struck out one and needed just 10 pitches to wrap up the day's festivities. The veteran closer has been as solid as ever this season, posting a 2.72 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 37/12 K/BB ratio over 49 2/3 innings while converting 29 of his 30 save chances.

Huston Street picked up his 27th save by tossing a scoreless ninth in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

Street has pitched the equivalent of more than two shutouts since June 23, firing 20 1/3 scoreless innings. The 30-year-old closer boasts a 2.70 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. He's 27-for-28 in save conversions this year.

Huston Street hasn't allowed a run since June 23.

Street limped to a 4.43 ERA in 20 1/3 innings before he was disabled in late May with a strained left calf. He also struggled upon his activation in June, allowing four runs and three homers over seven innings that month. He's been one of the majors' best pitchers since June 26, however, posting a 14/2 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings and holding opposing hitters to a .122 batting average and .285 OPS. He's 23-for-24 in save conversions this year.

Huston Street picked up his 21st save in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

Street allowed two baserunners, but was able to strike out the side and didn't give up any runs. The 30-year-old closer now has a 3.47 ERA and 1.16 WHIP.
