San Diego Padres closer Huston Street threw a simulated game yesterday, according to Jamal Collier of MLB.com. It was the right-hander's first time facing hitters since he was placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier this month. During the session, Street threw all of his pitches. Manager Bud Black said Street threw the ball well and his calf no longer seems to be an issue, but the veteran closer still wants to work on the consistency of his slider before he rejoins the Padres. Street sustained his injury prior to a May 31 contest against the Toronto Blue Jays when he was running during a pregame routine. His placement on the DL is retroactive to May 30, and he's hoping to rejoin the Padres after the minimum required days on shelf. Following his simulated game, Street is slated to pitch Wednesday for the Padres' Single-A affiliate before being reevaluated. Assuming all goes well, he could be activated by the weekend. Prior to hitting the DL, Street was 0-3 with a 4.43 ERA and 11 saves in 12 opportunities this season for the Padres. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
