Street (groin) was diagnosed with a mild rotator cuff strain Tuesday, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports. Street has been on the disabled list with a groin injury since early July, but recently began complaining of shoulder discomfort as well. The veteran reliever underwent an MRI on Tuesday that officially revealed that the 33-year-old is dealing with a mild rotator cuff strain in addition to his groin injury. It's unclear how long he'll remain out with the new injury, but it appears that Street is a ways away from rejoining the Angels' bullpen.
Street (groin) has yet to resume throwing despite being eligible to return from the disabled list, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Street expressed confidence in his ability to return from a minor groin injury following the All-Star break, but that goal appeared to be too lofty for the oft-injured reliever. Manager Mike Scioscia stated that the 33-year-old's injury has improved, which rules out any sort of setback, but a clear timetable for a return has not been set.
Street (groin) is confident he can return from the disabled list following the All-Star break, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Street added that his return may come a few days after he is eligible if the Angels feel that he needs to undergo a short rehab stint. A quick return would be a positive omen for the oft-injured reliever, as he was effective upon his initial return from the disabled list -- albeit in a small sample size -- throwing four scoreless innings with three strikeouts. Street isn't a great prospective pickup for those hunting saves given Bud Norris' sustained success as the Halos' closer this season.
Street (groin) was placed on the 10-day DL retroactive to June 3. Street will hit the shelf as the Angels recall the services of Eduardo Paredes from Triple-A Salt Lake to provide depth out of the bullpen. After returning from the 60-day DL on June 22 due to a lat and triceps issue, Street has worked four unblemished innings, striking out three and only allowing three baserunners in the process. There hasn't been a clear timetable for Street's return, but he will be eligible to come off the disabled list following the All-Star break.
Street tossed a perfect seventh inning with one strikeout in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers. Pitching in the seventh with a four-run deficit, Street retired Trayce Thompson, Mike Freeman and Chase Utley on a total of nine pitches. He has now turned in back-to-back perfect frames since returning from lat and triceps issues, but Street's role is unsettled, as is the case with the entire Angels bullpen. Perhaps the 33-year-old will work into the save mix eventually, but Blake Parker (who recorded the last save for the Angels), Cam Bedrosian, David Hernandez and Kenyan Middleton are all factors at the back end, and Bud Norris (knee) is inching closer to a return.
