Padres closer Huston Street has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, reports’s Corey Brock. Street, with a 4.43 ERA on the season, is dealing with a left calf injury and has pitched just once, on Saturday, since May 21. It is the same calf Street injured last year, which forced the right-hander to miss most of August and September. Brock notes the injury is less severe than last year, however.

Manger Bud Black intends to rely on Luke Gregerson to nail down saves in the meantime. Gregerson is carrying a 0.76 ERA in 20.1 innings. To fill Street’s vacant roster spot, the Padres have promoted lefty Tom Layne from Triple-A Tucson.

    I’m pretty sure Street’s ERA is 4.43.
