The San Diego Padres have reinstated Huston Street from the disabled list, reports Jeff Sanders of the North County Times:

Street, 29, has been out since August 11 with a left calf strain. He experienced several setbacks in recovery but is finally ready to rejoin the big-league team. Street will most likely retain his job as the team’s closer.

For the year, his first in San Diego, Street holds a miniscule 0.75 ERA and forty-five strikeouts in thirty-six innings. The right-hander also has twenty-one saves to go along with his other stellar numbers.

After Street’s injury, the closer role was designated to two pitchers, Luke Gregerson and Dale Thayer, with the former taking most of the opportunities. The Padres (72-78) currently sit in fourth place in the NL West and are out of contention for a playoff spot.
