Huston Street underwent successful surgery on his right knee Wednesday.
Street is done for the season, but it was an arthroscopic procedure -- not something more involved -- and the veteran right-hander is expected to be 100 percent by the beginning of spring training next February. He tweeted this from the hospital Wednesday morning: "Just got out of surgery, still pretty loopy, but the doc said I should come back throwing 98, but it could have been 89." Street, 33, finished the 2016 season with a rough 6.45 ERA, 1.93 WHIP, and 14/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. Fernando Salas is currently serving as the Angels' closer, by default.

Huston Street will undergo season-ending surgery Wednesday on his right knee.

It'll be an arthroscopic procedure, which should allow Street to enter spring training in 2017 at 100 percent. The 33-year-old right-hander wound up with a highly disappointing 6.45 ERA, 1.93 WHIP, and 14/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings this season. He's due $9 million from Anaheim next year with a $10 million club option (or $1 million buyout) for 2018.

Huston Street is expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery.

It's a fitting end to a disastrous season for the veteran closer. Street was rarely healthy this year and struggled when he was, collecting a miserable 6.45 ERA over 26 outings. Rookie Cam Bedrosian (finger) has surpassed him and would probably be the favorite for saves if he were healthy. Fernando Salas has filled in at closer the past couple weeks. The Angels' bullpen has been a complete mess this year.

Huston Street will receive a second opinion on his ailing right knee and could opt to undergo season-ending surgery.

Street has been sidelined all month with a knee issue and apparently hasn't experienced improvement as hoped. It's unclear what the specifics of the operations might be if he has one, but it's not expected to be anything that would threaten his availability for the start of 2017. Fernando Salas is currently filling in as the Angels' closer.

Angels placed RHP Huston Street on the 15-day disabled list with knee inflammation.

Street got lit up for five runs in his last appearance Sunday against the Red Sox, taking his third blown save. He has a 6.45 ERA and 1.93 WHIP for the year. Joe Smith was moved to the Cubs at the trade deadline on Monday, so ninth-inning duties could fall to Cam Bedrosian and his shiny 0.92 ERA. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he'll use a committee at first.
Aug 2 - 7:13 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia gave struggling closer Huston Street a vote of confidence after Sunday's blown save against the Red Sox.

Street melted down in the ninth inning on Sunday, giving up five runs and the game in the process. There have been rumblings that he has been on the trade block, though Sunday's implosion couldn't have helped his trade value. Cam Bedrosian is considered the closer of the future in Los Angeles and would be the man to take over should Street get traded or relieved of his closing duties.

Huston Street was charged with five earned runs in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

Street entered in the top of the ninth inning with the Angels leading 3-0 and promptly gave the game away on a walk, two singles, and back-to-back homers from Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts. The epic collapse comes with awful timing for the Angels, who are believed to be shopping their veteran closer. He now has a 6.45 ERA for the season.
Jul 31 - 7:18 PM

Huston Street fanned one batter in a clean ninth inning to earn a save on Saturday.

It was his ninth save of the season. The strikeout was nice to see as Street has really struggled to miss bats this season. He has struck out 12 batters and walked 11 in 21 2/3 innings and has a 4.79 ERA as a result.
Jul 31 - 12:48 AM

According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Angels closer Huston Street is among the Giants' trade targets leading up to the August 1 deadline.

He's probably more of a backup plan, as the Giants have been linked to a number of other relievers having far better seasons. Street, 32, owns a rough 5.03 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this year out of the Anaheim bullpen. He has missed time with oblique and hamstring injuries. The right-hander is under contract for $9 million in 2017 and carries a $10 million club option for 2018.

Huston Street (hamstring) picked up his eighth save of the season Tuesday versus the Rangers.

Street was forced from an appearance Sunday against the Orioles due to hamstring cramps, but it was obviously nothing serious. He worked around a leadoff single Tuesday, retiring the final three batters he faced to preserve the Angels' two-run lead.
Jul 20 - 8:39 AM

Huston Street was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Orioles due to hamstring cramps.

The injury isn't believed to be serious, the Angels simply didn't want to risk leaving him in the game and making things worse. He's considered day-to-day.
Jul 10 - 6:00 PM

Huston Street was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Orioles with an apparent injury.

Street was visited by the team trainer early in the eighth inning, where apparently he convinced everyone that he was fine and could stay in the game. Shortly after, he was visited again and this time pulled from the contest. It's unclear what type of injury he sustained, expect an update from the Angels shortly. Street allowed a run on two hits and a walk in 1/3 of an inning before departing.
Jul 10 - 4:43 PM

Huston Street allowed two runs without recording an out Tuesday, taking a blown save in a loss to the Astros.

Street walked the first two batters he faced and gave up a hard-hit single to Jose Altuve that third baseman Yunel Escobar was able to keep on the infield to load the bases, but Carlos Correa's liner to the right-center gap finished the deed. Perhaps the fact that Street hadn't pitched in a week contributed to his struggles, as he's now blown two of his last three chances dating back to June 11. His 2.84 ERA doesn't tell the whole story, as he also owns a 1.66 WHIP and 6/8 K/BB ratio over 12 2/3 innings this year, and the Angels may want to consider their alternatives to the 32-year-old if things don't change soon.
Jun 22 - 12:33 AM

Huston Street came on to save a three run lead for Matt Shoemaker but gave it up by allowing three runs on four hits and a walk in 2/3 of an inning before being pulled.

The poor outing boosted his ERA to 3.09 in 13 games. It was Street's first blown save of the year, but he missed several weeks with an oblique injury. He has pitched only 11 2/3 innings but has more walks (six) than strikeouts (five). He doesn't have the velocity he used to have, however his dwindling speed has not harmed him the last few years. Street has 321 career saves and a 2.82 career ERA. He is no longer an elite closer but should keep the job as long as he is healthy.
Jun 12 - 2:53 AM

Huston Street earned his first save since April 23 on Sunday afternoon against the Pirates.

Street missed most of May with an oblique injury and had some control issues on Sunday in Pittsburgh, but he managed to secure the final four outs of the game (between a single and two walks) for his sixth save of the season. The veteran right-hander owns a 0.90 ERA in 10 innings of work.
