Huston Street was originally expected to be activated from the disabled list tomorrow, but that won’t happen now after he had a setback with his strained left calf.
Street, who landed on the disabled list on August 12, was scratched from a rehab appearance with Triple-A Tucson last night after he still felt something in his calf while running. Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that he’s scheduled to rejoin the Padres on Monday in Los Angeles to be re-evaluated, so his return date is up in the air at the moment.
Street signed a two-year, $14 million extension with the Padres last month and holds an excellent 0.75 ERA and 45/8 K/BB ratio over 36 innings this season. He is a perfect 21-for-21 in save opportunities while his 0.53 WHIP is the lowest ever for a pitcher who has thrown at least 30 innings in a season. Seriously.
Street’s setback means that Luke Gregerson should continue to handle the closer role for now. He notched his third save of the season last night against the Rockies, despite giving up a solo homer to Andrew Brown.
