Fantasy Impact: It's an early end to a disappointing season for the veteran reliever. Street hit the DL with a 6.45 ERA and 1.93 ERA over 26 appearances.

Fantasy Impact: As many fantasy owners have been through this before you have probably already found a replacement for Street. If you are in a dynasty league, it is worth holding onto him as regular saves are hard to come by. In re-draft leagues it is time to let Street go. Even if he were to come back, he isn't having the best season. Cut him lose and don't look back.

Fantasy Impact: The 32-year old closer has a 6.45 ERA this season in 22 innings pitcher and nine saves. It's seems as if Street has been hurt all year with those numbers and I would not blame if you released the closer. I would advise looking for someone else to close for your fantasy team as Huston will struggle even when he comes back.

Huston Street melts down

Mon, Aug 1st 7:38am EDT
By Darren Smart

Street imploded in ugly fashion, giving up five runs in just 2/3 of an inning against the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Bad timing for the Angels as they had been rumoured to be shopping the closer, but it's not like Street had been very good the rest of the year, so who knows if this had any affect on his trade value. Manager Mike Scioscia gave Street a vote of confidence after the game, but it would seem that stashing Cam Bedrosian might be a good idea at this point.

Huston Street with cramps

Fantasy Impact: Street is injury prone so it was a bit of a scare. In the end we have nothing to worry about. Keep him in your lineups as he is good to go.

Category: , Injury Updates, Game Recaps


Street entered the 9th up 2-1 and promptly walked the first two batters he faced before giving up an infield single that set the stage for a Carlos Correa walk off two run single.

Fantasy Impact: It was just the 3rd appearance for the Angels closer since June 11th and two of those showings have led to blown saves. Street has a decent enough ERA at 2.84, but a more telling stat for a closer is WHIP, which is at a troublesome 1.66. He also has a weak 6/8 K/BB ratio in 12.2 innings. All this adds up to Street being a very shaky option.

Category: , Game Recaps


Since blowing the save on June 11th, Street has only appeared on one, throwing a perfect inning to record his seventh save in eight attempts.

Fantasy Impact: The Angels are struggling this year and Street was injured for awhile. His blown save rocketed his ERA from below one to over three. However, he had 81 saves over the previous two seasons and outside of the one bad outing he has been quite good this season.


Street gave up three runs in 2/3 of an inning to blow a 3-0 ninth inning lead. Fortunately for the Angels, they went on to win the game 4-3.

Fantasy Impact: This effort ballooned his ERA from 0.82 to 3.09. It is a hard pill to swallow for owners who may have taken a big hit to their chances in a weekly match-up or the DFS owners of Matt Shoemaker for whom he cost a win. However, he has 81 saves over the previous two seasons combined so an argument could be made to chalk this up to a bad game and continue to go with Street.

Street went 1 1/3 innings to finish up a 5-4 victory with a save. He allowed a hit and two walks, but escaped with no runs allowed.

Fantasy Impact: He missed part of the season, so his low toal of six saves are partially explained. He has an elite ERA of 0.90 and is a solid closer for both fantasy and reality purposes.

Category: , Game Recaps


Street pitched a perfect ninth inning in his return to keep the game tied and then picked up the win as the Angels won the game in the bottom of the ninth.

Fantasy Impact: He is a strong closer who is returning from injury. As long as he regains the closer job, he will be fantasy relevant and might be worth grabbing if your league missed his return.

Huston Street activated from DL

Tue, May 31st 10:50am EDT
By Blaine Blontz

The Angels activated closer Huston Street from the disabled list. He had been sidelined due to an oblique injury.

Fantasy Impact: Owners will welcome Street, who resumes his role as closer with the Angels, back with open arms. He provided a solid 1.17 ERA and 0.78 WHIP over nine games prior to his injury.

Fantasy Impact: Street's rehab stint is expected to only last for around a week, so he could be back in time for the June 4-5 weekend. These long DL stints are just par for the course for Street, but he's always worth the wait considering his career 2.83 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and his career 162-game average of 34 saves.

Fantasy Impact: Street was solid prior to the injury, posting a 1.17 ERA and 0.78 WHIP while accumulating five saves over nine appearances with the Angels. He'll slide back into the team's closer role. If he was dropped when injured and is available, you'll want to scoop him up as he's nearing return.

Fantasy Impact: Street is one of the top and most consistent closer's in baseball. Before the injury Street had a 1.17 ERA with five saves and a win in 7 2/3 innings pitched. Once Street is activated, you should get him back in your lineups as soon as possible.

Fantasy Impact: Every Street owner should be running to pick up Joe Smith as he is the hands on favorite to resume the closer role for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Expect Street to be out at least three to four weeks with this injury.

Huston Street allowed no runs and no hits in one inning against the Rangers on Sunday. He had no walks and two strikeouts in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: Street, ever the model of consistency, now adds a save to his nice start to the regular season. Plus, if he can add a pair of Ks every now and again, Street might be one of the better values based on his draft day cost. Let's just hope the wheels don't fall off.

Huston Street allowed no runs and no hits in one inning against Texas on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Street pitched a clean ninth inning to pick up a nice win for fantasy owners. He's looked good so far in two appearances, though Street has yet to record a strikeout. Keep him active.

Huston Street allowed no runs and no hits in one inning against the Cubs on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Street had all zeroes in his first outing, a non-save appearance against the Cubs on Tuesday. Street is as steady as they come for closers, and as long as he is healthy, he should be active in all formats.

Huston Street allowed no runs and no hits in one inning against Colorado on Thursday. He had no walks and one strikeout in the outing.

Fantasy Impact: As long as Street is healthy he remains a solid closer option. Street is not a strikeout specialist, so do not expect him to end up among the elite at the end of the season, but low ERA and WHIP numbers, along with 30 or so saves is doable once again for the veteran. Draft accordingly (15th RP, 129 overall ADP).

Huston Street allowed no runs on two hits in one inning against the Diamondbacks on Thursday. He also had one walk and no strikeouts in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: Street looked a bit rusty in his Spring debut, but as long as he's healthy there should be no real concern for Street this season. Street's ERA jumped in 2015 from 1.38 to 3.18, his Ks haven't reached 60+ since 2009, and a rough injury history makes the career-closer a risk to take. Street doesn't have any job security risk, but he's going 14th among RP (129th Overall), making him a potential reach for many owners (don't let it be you).

Fantasy Impact: Street enters another season as the Angels' closer. He was solid in 2015, providing 40 saves with a 3.18 ERA. However, he appeared to be pitching a bit over his head, considering his 3.73 FIP. Our experts don't like him for his 129 ADP, as they have him as 145 overall in ECR.

Huston Street struggled on Wednesday but managed to hold a two-run lead and record his 40th save of the season versus the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: Street has struggled with the Astros of late, but Scioscia will never shy away designated bullpen roles. Street allowed two hits, resulting in one run, and recorded zero strikeouts. Every save from here on will be a career milestone for Street, who's previous high was 37 with Oakland in 2006.

Huston Street blown up by Astros

Sun, Sep 13th 9:47pm EDT
By Chris Zolli

Huston Street allowed five runs on Sunday to move his ERA to 3.30 for the season. This was the third straight game that Street pitched in and he was attempting to build on his AL-leading 35 saves.

Fantasy Impact: Street had scoreless appearances in seven of his last nine games coming into Sunday's outing and the five runs allowed nearly match the seven he had allowed in the second half coming into the game. He had earned a save in six of his last seven appearances and still has a 1.13 WHIP for the season.

Huston Street allowed no runs and no hits in one inning against the Tigers on Thursday. He had no walks and two strikeouts in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: Street earned his 31st save on Thursday, tying him for fifth in MLB, as he looks to finish in the top-10 at closer on the player rater once again. Street doesn't usually rely on strikeouts, which keeps his fantasy value down, but he's been one of the more consistent options for years (as long as he's been healthy).

Huston Street collected his 30th save of the season Tuesday, allowing two hits and no runs over 1.1 innings against the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact: Street continues to be a solid fantasy option. After an inconsistent July, Street has five saves and a 2.08 ERA in August.

Huston Street allowed no runs on one hit in one inning against the Indians on Monday. He had one strikeout in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: Street was among the top closers in saves back in June, but he only received two save opportunities in July, and this was his first save since the 22nd of that month. Street is still a top-10 closer option, but until he gets consistent chances his fantasy owners are left in a bind. Keep him active and hope the Angels get into more tight games.

Huston Street allowed no runs on one hit in one inning against the Rockies on Wednesday. He had one walk and one strikeout in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: The 24th save ties Street for 5th in MLB as he continues to be a top option at closer. None of Street's numbers jump off the page when compared to elite closers (2.27 ERA/0.93 WHIP/9.08 K/9), but his consistency is what keeps him in that group. Street is on pace to surpass his career high in saves from last year of 41.

Huston Street allowed no runs on one hit in one inning against the Mariners on Saturday. He also had one walk in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: Street remains a top option at closer, now tied for sixth in MLB in saves with 21. Street's ERA (2.05) and K/9 (9.39) are great as well, which comes as no surprise since health has always been the only issue with him. Keep him active in all fantasy formats.

Huston Street allowed no runs and no hits in 1 1/3 innings against Houston on Monday. He had one strikeout in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: Street now has three wins to go with his 20 saves (4th in MLB) and an excellent 2.22 ERA. His 9.33 K/9 is middling among closers, but Street is certainly a top tier option regardless.

Huston Street allowed no runs and no hits in one inning against Arizona on Tuesday. He also had one strikeout in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: Street continues his excellent season, earning his 20th save (4th in MLB), while maintaining stellar ratios (2.33 ERA/0.93 WHIP/9.33 K/9). He's a top-5 option at the position, and fantasy owners who grabbed him (likely late in drafts) are reaping the rewards.

Huston Street allowed no runs on one hit and one walk in an inning of relief against the A's on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: It was the first save for Street since May 31st, but he's now back in the top-5 in the category with 18. Fantasy owners can relax, as Street remains an excellent closer option, and he should end the season as such. Keep him active in all formats.

Huston Street allowed one earned run on one hit in one inning of relief against the Tigers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Street got his 16th save, tying him for second in MLB, but it wasn't a clean effort. Still, it was the first time since May 7th that Street allowed a run, so fantasy owners can give him some leeway. Keep Street active in all fantasy formats.

Huston Street allowed no runs on one hit in one inning of work against the Orioles on Friday. He struckout two of the four batters he faced in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: Street has been stellar this season for the Angels, and he rewarded them for signing him to a new contract by tallying his 12th save of the season on Friday. Street is now tied for 3rd in MLB with those 12 saves, and that combined with a 10.34 K/9 and solid 2.87 ERA makes him a top-tier fantasy closer option in any league.

Fantasy Impact: Street was going to be a free agent this fall but the Halos locked him up for the next couple years. He's one of the best closers in the game and has converted 11 saves in 13 opportunities this year. His 3.07 ERA is a little high right now but it will come down as the season progresses. He has 16 strikeouts in 14.2 innings with a 1.09 WHIP and is pitching for a team with a good offense. Deploy with confidence.

Huston Street picked up the save yesterday after blowing his last two attempts. He had a 1-2-3 inning while strike one hitter out.

Fantasy Impact: This was Street's tenth save of the season. Street had blown his last two opportunities, but after a day off he looked back to normal yesterday. The Angels still feel comfortable with Street as their closer going forward.

Huston Street allowed three earned runs on four hits in 2/3 of an inning against the Astros on Thursday. He also walked a batter in the outing.

Fantasy Impact: Street started off wonderfully this season, with eight straight saves in eight opportunities without allowing a run, but he has imploded recently with five runs given up in his last four appearances. Street's ERA is nearly up to 4, but he is still tied for sixth in MLB for saves with nine, and remains someone that should be active in all fantasy formats. Street should bounce back unless there is an injury we don't know about.

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.

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.
