Angels' Street looking forward to significant personal milestone

Los Angeles Angels closer Huston Street is getting very close to an impressive personal achievement. Entering play Monday, Street has 296 career saves in his career - leaving him with just four to go until he cracks the 300 Club.  Only 26 pitchers have ever hit 300 saves (dating back to 1969, when the 'save' became an official stat), so when Street eclipses that total he'll become...

The sample size is still small, but most of Huston Street’s peripheral numbers appear to be trending in a positive direction this season. His strikeout rate is up, his home run rate is down, his batting average-against is down, and his walk rate is right in line with his career norms.
