Huston Street hired an agent for the first time since 2012 to negotiate an extension with the Angels

Huston Street has represented himself without an agent since 2012, but since he’s still in contract extension talks with the Angels and the season has started the veteran closer has hired agent Alan Hendricks to do the negotiating.

There was some speculation that the Angels were waiting to finalize a deal with Street until they got a ruling on a potential refund for Josh Hamilton’s salary, but now that they won’t be getting any of that money back the talks with Street can continue ahead of his free agency next offseason.

Street saved 17 games with a 1.71 ERA for the Angels after coming over from the Padres in mid-July and has a 1.97 ERA in 155 innings during the past three seasons. At age 31 he’s been a high-level closer for a decade and figures to be looking for something in the same range David Robertson (four years, $46 million) got from the White Sox this winter.
