The Padres have activated closer Huston Street for tonight’s game against the Giants, exactly one month after he was placed on the disabled list with a strained right lat muscle.
Street gave up two runs in two innings over two rehab appearances with High-A Lake Elsinore, but it was enough to convince the Padres that he was ready to return.
Street, who was acquired from the Rockies during the offseason, posted a 0.93 ERA, four saves and 13/2 K/BB ratio in 10 innings prior to going on the disabled list. The 28-year-old right-hander figures to be prime trade bait this summer for the rebuilding Padres. He’s making a very reasonable $7.5 million salary this season while his contract includes a $9 million mutual option for 2013 and a $500,000 buyout if the club declines.
