Padres closer Huston Street winds up on DL

4 Comments

Padres closer Huston Street has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, reports MLB.com’s Corey Brock. Street, with a 4.43 ERA on the season, is dealing with a left calf injury and has pitched just once, on Saturday, since May 21. It is the same calf Street injured last year, which forced the right-hander to miss most of August and September. Brock notes the injury is less severe than last year, however.

Manger Bud Black intends to rely on Luke Gregerson to nail down saves in the meantime. Gregerson is carrying a 0.76 ERA in 20.1 innings. To fill Street’s vacant roster spot, the Padres have promoted lefty Tom Layne from Triple-A Tucson.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports that the players picked up three arbitration victories thanks to Jesús Aguilar, Brian Goodwin, and Aledmys Díaz. Each player was arbitration-eligible for the first time.

The players have now won four of 10 arbitration cases thus far. Historically, teams have won the majority of arbitration cases and that continues to be the case this year. However, at least today’s results move the needle back towards the middle.

Aguilar filed for $2.575 million while the Marlins countered at $2.325 million.

Goodwin filed for $2.2 million; the Angels $1.85 million.

Díaz $2.6 million, Astros $2 million.

There are three arbitration cases remaining, two of which belong to the Phillies (J.T. Realmuto, Héctor Neris). The Diamondbacks have the other with Archie Bradley.
