The Los Angeles Angels have signed closer Huston Street to a two-year, $18 million deal, according to Chris Cotillo. The deal will keep Street in an Angels uniform through the 2018 season.

Street came to the Angels from the Padres in a July trade last season and posted a 1.71 ERA in 28 appearances for Los Angeles, saving 17 games down the stretch. Street had a 1.37 ERA and 41 saves overall this season.

The 31-year-old is off to another strong start in 2015, with a 3.07 ERA and 11 saves in 15 appearances. He has walked just five and struck out 16 in 14⅔ innings.
