Angels reliever Huston Street has been moved to the 60-day disabled list and will be out until at least June 1, according to Maria Guardado of MLB.com. In doing so, the Angels acquired right-handed reliever Parker Bridwell from the Orioles to take Street’s place on the 40-man roster and sent Bridwell down to Double-A Mobile.
The 33-year-old Street has been sidelined with a strained right lat following an appearance in spring training on March 3. Street had been on a throwing program and Guardado said he looked as if he was going to return to the team at the end of the month, but the shift to the 60-day DL now has him out at least another two months.
A 12-year veteran and a two-tine All Star, Street is trying to bounce back from the his worst season of his career. He posted a 6.45 ERA and a 1.93 WHIP while recording only nine saves in 22 1/3 innings before undergoing season-ending knee surgery in August.
Street’s setback with his injury has put the Angels in a tough spot, as they have hardly an experience in their bullpen after also losing right-hander Andrew Bailey to injury. The Angels placed Bailey on the 10-day DL last week with right shoulder inflammation.
