Found June 11, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
San Diego Padres closer Huston Street threw a simulated game yesterday, according to Jamal Collier of 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?

Bullpen Sadness and Kevin Quackenbush News

Yesterday afternoon, as the Padres’ bullpen lost control for the second time in three days, fans started offering thoughts. They ranged from, “We want Luke Gregerson’s head on a stick” to “WHY IS JOE THATCHER EVEN ON THE TEAM????” I’m paraphrasing but make no mistake fans were upset, myself included. Then I began to see the name of Kevin Quackenbush getting floated...

Indoctrination 101: What’s the Secret Password?

I recently found that a disturbing number of young people don’t know the name of Tony Gwynn or his historical significance to the city of San Diego. In fairness to these children, the overwhelming majority were born during 2001 when Tony was riding off into the sunset. I don’t blame these kids. I blame their parents. How could you raise your children in the city of San Diego...

A Small Step To Fix A Larger Problem

I’ve lived most of my life in Southern California, which means I do certain things and like certain things.  For instance:  Halloween Night is meant to be spent at Irvine Meadows listening to Oingo Boingo.  Freeways are referred to as the number without an article before them (you take 5 North to 405 North to 10 West.  No ‘The Five’.  Heathens.).  And arguably the best...

The Padres Surprising Middle Infield

It’s hard to find a good, stable middle infield combination, especially offensively, since so many players at those positions are defensive specialists who are happy to see a blooper fall in occasionally. When a team like the Padres puts together a good middle infield combo seemingly overnight, it’s definitely worthy of mention. In shortstop Everth Cabrera and second baseman...
