Rockies name Huston Street as closer

Today the Colorado Rockies named Huston Street as their closer over Manny Corpas.
“This is what I came to camp to accomplish and it’s a role I feel comfortable with. There is a lot of responsibility that goes along with it,” Street said. “My teammates should expect me to not only get the job done but be prepared to get the job done. That’s what I spent the whole offseason doing. I feel like this is just the beginning.”
The Rockies acquired Street in the trade that sent outfielder Matt Holliday to Oakland.

Street has pitched well in his last eight outings (only five hits allowed). However, he has an ERA of 5.23 this spring.
