Rockies closer Huston Street set to come off DL tomorrow

Huston Street threw a pair of scoreless innings while rehabbing at Triple-A and is expected to come off the disabled list tomorrow, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

He’s been out since August 8 with a strained triceps and Rafael Betancourt has been flawless as the fill-in closer, but the Rockies figure to hand ninth-inning duties back to Street. He had a 4.06 ERA before the injury, serving up 10 homers in 51 innings, but did convert 29 saves in 32 chances.

Setup man Matt Lindstrom is also close to returning from a nerve injury in his arm, so the Rockies bullpen may soon be at something resembling full strength as they try to claw back to .500.
