The San Diego Padres have made their second major signing of the past week as they agreed to a two-year extension with closer Huston Street on Sunday.

The deal, first reported by U-T San Diego, gives Street a two-year contract worth $14 million beginning next season. The contract includes a team option for 2015.

"Huston is an established closer and has proven to be a valuable leader and teammate," Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said in a statement. "We are very excited to have him be part of this organization going forward."

Last Sunday, the Padres signed outfielder Carlos Quentin to a three-year, $27 million extension. Like Quentin, the new contract essentially takes Street off the market with two days left until Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline.

Street was in the final year of a three-year $22.5 million contract. He was traded to the Padres by the Colorado Rockies last December for minor-league pitcher Nick Schmidt after closer Heath Bell signed a free-agent deal with the Miami Marlins.

The Padres' lone All-Star Game representative has started this season with 17 consecutive 17 saves, the longest streak in the majors. He has also has a 2-0 record with an 0.91 ERA.

Street has 195 career saves with a 32-21 record and a 2.94 ERA.
