Don't Expect Closer Street to Pitch this Weekend

Contrary to earlier reports, the Rockies will most likely be without their closer Huston Street this weekend in San Diego, said pitching coach Bob Apodaca.

Street is making progress with his biceps injury, but Apodaca admitted that the idea that right-hander would throw against the Padres "was too optimistic." Working in Street's favor is that Franklin Morales hasn't skipped a beat. He has converted five straight save opportunities.

"It absolutely allows us to (be more patient with Street)," Apodaca said.

Morales has been a perfect 5-for-5 in save opportunities since taking over for Street.
