San Diego Padres CL Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) may land on the 15-dayd disabled list with a sore right shoulder. The team could wait a few more days before making a decision.
Fantasy Tip: Kevin Quackenbush is expected to fill in for Benoit. Pick him up in all leagues if you need a short-term saves fix. Dale Thayer and Alex Torres could also fill in on occasion and are NL-only targets.

The San Diego Padres activated RP Huston Street (calf) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 14.
Fantasy Tip: If he doesn't immediately reclaim the closer role, it should happen in the coming days. Luke Gregerson (and, for the more desperate, Dale Thayer) remain worth holding for a bit to see how the injury-prone Street responds to returning.

The San Diego Padres have placed CL Huston Street (calf) on the 15-day disabled list with a calf strain. It was the same calf strain that landed him on the disabled list last year, but Padres manager Bud Black said this injury is not as severe. RPs Luke Gregerson and Dale Thayer will be used to close games in Street's absence, with the former expected to get the bulk of the save chances.
Fantasy Tip: Gregerson should be picked up in all fantasy universes and played until Street's return from the DL. Thayer has limited value but could be looked to if you are desperate for save chances.

San Diego Padres RPs Huston Street and Luke Gregerson are both unavailable to pitch Monday, April 29, as they've both thrown in each of the last three days.
Fantasy Tip: If a save situation arises Monday, expect Dale Thayer to get the shot to close out the game. Thayer has minimal experience as a closer from last season.
