The San Diego Padres have placed closer Huston Street on the 15-day disabled list with a left calf strain injury, according to Bill Center of The San Diego Union-Tribune. The team will call up right-handed reliever Cory Burns from Class Triple-A Tucson to take Street's roster spot while he is sidelined.

The 29-year-old Street is having an excellent season as the team's closer, posting a 0.75 ERA across 36 complete innings of work. Street is also sporting a career best 11.3 K/9 and 2.0 BB/9, which has helped him shut the door on 21 saves.

While Street is out, the Padres have several options in play for high leverage situations, including Dale Thayer and Luke Gregerson. Thayer has been in that role this year and has 5 saves.
