Padres, Rockies Complete Huston Street Trade

UPDATE 3:15 PM EST: The Padres will send a player to be named later and pay all but $7 million of Street's contract. The Padres designated Jeremy Hermida for assignment, the club announced.

UPDATE 2:48 PM EST: The deal is done; Huston Street is a San Diego Padre, reports Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

UPDATE 2:00 PM EST: Per Jayson Stark via Twitter, the trade is still not done, and that the teams are still working through names and related issues.

UPDATE 1:43 PM EST: Per Joel Sherman, the Rockies will be paying $1M of Street's salary, which will leave the Padres on the hook for $6.5 M for this year and a player option of $9 M in 2013 (salary info via Cot's)

The San Diego Padres are nearing a trade with the Colorado Rockies for closer Huston Street in exchange for a player to be named later, according to Buster Olney via twitter (other sources below).

Colorado is due to pay Street $7.5M in 2012 with a $500K buyout, most or all of which the Padres are expected to pick up. Troy Renck points out that this frees up a little money for the Rockies to pursue starting pitching:
