Having just completed a multi-year contract extension with outfielder Carlos Quentin, the San Diego Padres are now shifting their focus to working out a contract extension with closer Huston Street, according to Scott Miller of CBS Sports. The Padres are transitioning ownership currently, but have given Padres GM Josh Byrnes approval to continue talks.

"Discussions with Street remain in the early phases and it is too soon to gauge how they will play out, sources with knowledge of the talks told CBSSports.com on Sunday."

Street has been one of several players on the Padres drawing interest from rival teams. He still could move if the team can't work out a contract extension they are comfortable within the next 8 days. The 28-year-old could become a free-agent at season's end, depending on whether his $9M mutual option is exercised.

Street is currently posting a 0.99 ERA across 27 1/3 innings of work along with a career-high 12.2 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9. While he isn't a complete product of Petco park, he has yet to allow a home run this season.
