The 29-year-old Street was injured on the final play in Friday night’s 9-8 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates, when he went to cover first base on a groundball.

Street is 2-0 on the season with a 0.75 ERA and 45 strike outs in 36 innings of work. He has converted all 21 of his save opportunities.
