Padres manager Bud Black indicated that Dale Thayer could fill in at closer if Huston Street (calf) requires a stint on the disabled list.
Thayer and Luke Gregerson are being considered for save chances. We'd expect Thayer to assume the role he held when Street was out in earlier this season, but Gregerson could be an option if he struggles. It's also possible the Padres could use a closer-by-committee. Both pitchers are worth stashing away if you need saves.
looks like Thayer over Gregerson.
