Angels sign closer Huston Street to $18 million extension


Throughout spring training indications were that Huston Street and the Angels both had an interest in keeping him from next offseason’s free agent market with a contract extension and now the two sides have agreed to a two-year deal.

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that he’ll get $18 million in guaranteed money and the deal also includes a team option for 2018 with a $1 million buyout.

Street is currently finishing up a six-year, $43 million deal originally signed with the Rockies. He has a 2.25 ERA and 38/12 K/BB ratio in 40 innings for the Angels since they acquired him from the Padres last July and has a 2.83 career ERA in 605 total innings since debuting in 2005.

At age 31 he’ll surpass 300 career saves later this season and Street has posted a sub-4.00 ERA in each of his 11 years in the majors, including a 2.80 ERA in the American League.
