Huston Street welcomes competition for job as Angels' closer

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Huston Street has been a durable, dependable big league closer for 12 seasons. He hasn't even had to compete for the job since 2009.

Can Huston Street Be His Old Self In 2017?

Last year was not too jolly for Huston Street. Earlier in the year he skirmished his way through an oblique injury, and, let alone that injury, the longtime closer had season-ending surgery on his right knee. Not too pretty of a picture to impart the least. Not too pretty by any stretch of the imagination. With that being said, it is feasible to wonder whether the waves will simmer...

Huston Street on (Imperfect) Stats

Huston Street isn’t an expert on analytics. Nor does he claim to be. But he’s by no means a neophyte. The veteran closer is more knowledgeable about advanced stats than the average player. He also has some strong opinions. A little over a year ago, Street shared his negative view of FIP in one of my Sunday Notes columns. This past spring, I approached him at the Angels’ spring...

2016 Angels Preview: Huston Street

Huston Street’s 2015 wasn’t bad, per se, but it was disappointing given the Angels inked Street to a three-year extension in early May. Even if saves are a silly stat, a team would happily take their closer reaching the 40-save plateau every year; it means he was a) healthy/good enough to pitch that many innings, and b) hey 40 banked wins is pretty good. But you can’t help...

Stat Sunday: Street Struggling With Command

The sample size is still small, but most of Huston Street’s peripheral numbers appear to be trending in a positive direction this season. His strikeout rate is up, his home run rate is down, his batting average-against is down, and his walk rate is right in line with his career norms. And with the tallying of his 19th save (in 21 opportunities) Saturday night, dropping his earned...
