Angels pick up Huston Street’s option for 2015

1 Comment

Huston Street’s arrival in a midseason trade from the Padres played a huge role in turning the Angels’ bullpen around and now they’ve exercised his $7 million option for 2015.

Street saved a career-high 41 games this season between the two teams, throwing 59 innings with a 1.37 ERA and 57/14 K/BB ratio. He struggles at times with durability, but Street has a 1.97 ERA during the past three seasons and has converted 94 percent of his save chances during that time.

Next season will be his final year before reaching free agency at age 32.
