According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies have activated closer Huston Street from the 15-day disabled list in time for Friday night’s series opener against the Dodgers.

Street missed a little over two weeks after suffering a mild right triceps strain in early August. He did not allow a run in two minor league rehab appearances and claims to be back to full health.

The 28-year-old right-hander has posted a decent 4.06 ERA and 1.18 WHIP through 51 innings this season. He also has an impressive 49/8 K/BB ratio.

Rafael Betancourt filled in at closer in Street’s absence, converting all three opportunities sent his way.

The Rox are currently nine games back in the National League West and 15 1/2 games out of the Wild Card.
