San Diego Padres relievers Joe Thatcher and Huston Street are both set to return from the disabled list by this weekend, reports Chelsea Janes of MLB.com:

The Padres' bullpen has been downright stingy of late, but they may be about to get even more formidable this weekend, as veteran arms Joe Thatcher and Huston Street are set to rejoin the team after August stints on the disabled list.

Thatcher, 30, who has been battling tendinitis in his right knee for over a month, threw a rehab game at Class A Lake Elsinore last night. The left-hander threw a scoreless inning, striking out one, and now should join the Rockies for their weekend series in Colorado on Friday. Thatcher owns a 3.42 ERA and 9.4 K/9 in forty-two appearances on the season.

The 29-year-old Street, who signed a two-year contract extension with the Padres last month, has been out since August 11 with a strained left calf. Like Thatcher, the right-hander is expected to throw a rehab game at Class A Elsinore and could join the Padres in Colorado as soon as Sunday.

Street, who has converted all 21 of his save opportunities this season, has put up a miniscule 0.75 ERA and 11.3 K/9 in thirty-six innings this year. The closer currently has a twenty and a third innings scoreless streak going, not having allowed a run since June 17.
