Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Huston Street has been shut down indefinitely and will likely begin the season on the disabled list after experiencing shoulder soreness while playing catch today.
Street was sidelined early in camp with what the Rockies deemed shoulder inflammation, but had progressed to throwing regularly before this setback. Now he’s headed for an MRI exam and the closer who signed a $22.5 million contract extension in January admitted that “Opening Day is definitely in jeopardy” while calling the situation “really frustrating.”
Manny Corpas has the most closing experience of the potential Street fill-ins, but Franklin Morales would likely get the nod to replace him initially. Rafael Betancourt is also an option, but he may join Street on the season-opening disabled list because of a shoulder injury of his own.
