Street back to throwing after shoulder soreness

Mar 5, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

Huston Street has been unavailable for game action since his shoulder began hurting after throwing batting practice last week, but the Rockies’ closer was able to play catch from 120 feet today and even threw 15 pitches off flat ground.
“We just want to make sure we get a couple good days under our belt,” Street told Jack Etkin of Inside The Rockies. “I’ve been encouraged the whole time. I’ve never really been worried about it.”
Officially diagnosed with right shoulder inflammation, Street should be able to make his spring training debut at some point next week if he can avoid a setback.
