San Diego Padres RP Huston Street (groin) is dealing with a minor groin pull and is being pushed back.
Fantasy Tip: This injury shouldn't compromise his ability to be ready by opening day, but it does remind owners that Street is oft-injured. Joaquin Benoit is solid handcuff option and will likely be the first to step in for saves if Street misses time during the season.

San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit is expected to be the eighth-inning setup man to RP Huston Street this year. Benoit will also provide insurance to Street in case he's injured and misses time.
Fantasy Tip: Benoit can remain a worthy fantasy player to own, especially as a handcuff to the oft-injured Street. NL-only leaguers probably wouldn't mind him gracing their roster, either, for his valuable peripherals that should look nicer at PETCO Park.

Despite the signing of RP Joaquin Benoit, the San Diego Padres are not actively looking to move CL Huston Street.
Fantasy Tip: Benoit and Street are likely to battle for the closer's job in 2014. Whoever emerges as the winner will be a strong fantasy play. The Padres aren't likely to blow out many teams, so there will be plenty of save opportunities.

San Diego Padres RP Luke Gregerson will fill-in as the team's closer for at least the first two games of the upcoming week with RP Huston Street (personal) away from the team to attend his grandmother's funeral.
Fantasy Tip: Gregerson remains a strong play in all rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories, and now he might be able to chip in with a save or two, too.

San Diego Padres RP Huston Street had a 4.15 ERA at the All-Star break, but he has converted nine straight save chances heading into action Friday, Aug. 23, and he has not allowed a run in his past 15 appearances.

"He's done a nice job the last month of getting his slider back to where the spin needs to be."
