ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Los Angeles Angels acquired All-Star closer Huston Street and prospect Trevor Gott from the San Diego Padres for minor leaguers Taylor Lindsey, R.J. Alvarez, Jose Rondon and Elliot Morris in a trade on Friday night. Street (1-0) has 24 saves in 25 opportunities and a 1.09 ERA in 33 games this season. “Huston’s 30 years old, and arguably having his best season as a major leaguer,” Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said. ” … I feel really strong about his character and what he brings to the clubhouse. It really deepens the back end of our bullpen and it gives us the opportunity to make games shorter.” Street was unavailable to the Padres during their 5-4 home loss to the New York Mets on Friday night. San Diego (41-55) is in third place in the NL West, 12 games off the pace. In 10 major league seasons with Oakland (2005-08), Colorado (2009-11) and San Diego (2012-14), Street is 35-27 with 258 saves and a 2.87 ERA. He has converted 109 of his last 117 save chances, the best mark in the majors in that span. Gott, 21, has split this season between Single-A Lake Elsinore and Double-A San Antonio. In 39 combined relief outings, he is 2-4 with 16 saves and a 3.56 ERA. He was chosen as a mid-season California League All-Star. Lindsey, a 22-year-old second baseman, was the No. 37 pick by the Angels in the 2010 draft. In four-plus minor league seasons campaigns, he has batted .289 with 43 home runs and 209 RBI. He was rated as the Angels’ top prospect by Baseball America. Alvarez, 23, has gone 7-4 with five saves in two-plus minor league seasons. The 20-year-old Rondon was signed as an international free agent in January 2011. The Venezuelan infielder has played in 245 minor league games, batting .300 with 146 runs and 116 RBI. Morris, 22, has appeared in 28 games – 18 starts – in the Angels system, going 7-6 with a 3.43 ERA. Photo via Twitter/@AngelsFiled under: Los Angeles Angels, MLB, The Associated Press, Top Stories
