Street halts throwing program, out indefinitely

It’s not a significant setback, but the Rox don’t have a workable timetable for his return to a major league mound and it’s not out of the question that he might be out until the end of May.  Franklin Morales is expected to fill in at closer until Street returns and is gaining major ground in Rotoworld’s Draft Guide.

Street signed a three-year, $22.5 million extension this winter with an option for 2013.  He amassed a 3.06 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 35 saves in 37 chances last season.
