Heck yea he's worth keeping. Not at the dominant level yet, but close to it. And he should be closing by next week.

Street will be closing by next week - 2 weeks at the latest. He hasn't pitched in so long, they just want to use him in middle relief until he gets a few innings under his belt.

Jul 24 Street, who was activated from the DL after missing 63 games, pitched one inning Monday and allowed a run and two hits. He was sidelined because of an irritation in his right ulnar nerve.
Advice: It's going to take time for Street to regain his strength and effective. With that said, it's uncertain if he will be able to maintain the closer role the entire rest of the way.


Am I reading this wrong? Wasn't it the nerve that put him on the DL in the first place? Might be longer than next week to get him back to closer form.

I think you're reading it wrong. "He was sidelined because of an irritation in his right ulnar nerve." is referring to the "Street, who was activated from the DL after missing 63 games" part of the first sentence. These updates are often poorly written.

I would keep Street and, if you have him, Embree as well. Street will re-gain the closer job within a week or two if he is healthy. Embree will continue to close until then. But I would not be surprised if Street suffers another set-back and possibly more DL time. He's not very durable to begin with, and this injury seems like it could be one of those lingering ones.

Street has soreness in elbow
The News
Huston Street has had some soreness in his right elbow since his appearance Monday. Manager Bob Geren downplayed it though, saying Street would have been available in an "emergency only" situation Wednesday, according to the Mercury News. Street missed 63 games because of irritation in his right elbow, so, despite Geren's comments, you have to at least be a little worried about the right-hander.
Our View
Forgive us for not being worried, Bobby. This is not a good sign that it took only one appearance for Street to feel sore. Perhaps it's just normal soreness because he had such a long layoff, but either way, this is definitely something worth keeping an eye on.

Let's see how his elbow reacts after successfully preserving a 4-run lead in the 9th for the A's.

according to rotoworld


Huston Street, who returned to action this week and pitched in the ninth inning Thursday in a non-save situation, may not head back to closing right away, manager Bob Geren says.

Geren is not sure when Street will be able to go on back-to-back nights, and obviously that's a key consideration before he's handed back the gig. Geren said he'll assess the situation "After I see him a few times. He's thrown one big-league inning in two months, I want to make sure he's ready first. And Alan (Embree) has done such a good job.''


so i guess he wont be back as closer next week. im starting to get a little worried if hes not gonna come back as closer and when if hes gonna be 100% like the artice above said.
