Houston Street came in the ninth inning and closed out the Athletics striking out two.

Fantasy Impact: It was another stellar outing for Street who is now 8-for-8 in save chances. He has not allowed a run all year and has only issued two walks. He is one of the best closers in fantasy baseball.

Houston Street allowed no runs on one hit in an inning of work against the Rangers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Street earned his seventh save of the season (in seven appearances), tying for second in the league thus far. Street has also not allowed a run this season, and has eight strikeouts compared to just two walks. Keep the veteran active in all fantasy formats.

Angels closer Huston Street earned his third save against the Texas Rangers on Monday night. He struck out two batters and now has five strikeouts in his three appearances during 2015.

Fantasy Impact: Huston Street threw seventeen pitches, of which twelve were strikes. His save conversion rate has been around the best in the majors at 96% the past three seasons. Street isn't an elite closer for piling up strikeouts, but when healthy, he is a top ten relief option.

Angels closer Huston Street earned his second save in a row on Wednesday night against the Mariners. He pitched the ninth inning in each game and did not give up any hits or walks on either night.

Fantasy Impact: Street will be able to rest on the Angels travel day Thursday, ensuring he is available for the Angels home opener on Friday, April 10th. Street showed excellent control on Wednesday, mixing his sinker and slider speeds between 81 and 90 MPH.

Huston Street allowed 4 runs on 3 hits in one inning of work against the Athletics on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Street got knocked around by the Rangers a couple days ago allowing 6 runs on 4 hits in 1 2/3 innings. He now owns a 8.10 ERA with a 1/3 K/B ratio in 6 2/3 innings this spring. Spring stats are not a huge concern but one cannot feel good about these numbers. Joe Smith would be the alternate guy to take a look at but his spring has not been any better.

The Angels intend to negotiate an extension with closer Huston Street, whom they acquired from San Diego in July last season. The Angels activated his 2015 club option for $7 million, after Street had a career-high 41 saves. (Source: Los Angeles Angels website)

Fantasy Impact: Street will turn 32 this season with just over 600 innings on his right arm, as he has never been a starter during his ten years in the majors (or minors). He's missed time due to injury for five straight seasons, but has a 91% save conversion rate during that time. His K rate, FIP and HR/9 rate have remained solid as well. Other closers relying on more than just fastballs, such as Trevor Hoffman and John Smoltz, pitched into their 40's. The Angels should keep Street around for another few years, and fantasy owners can rely on him for saves in 2015.
