TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Colorado Rockies closer Huston Street received encouraging news when the MRI on his ailing right shoulder revealed no structural damage.
The MRI was done Wednesday after Street felt tightness in his shoulder. He felt fine after throwing 25 pitches Monday in a simulated game but felt tightness in the shoulder while playing catch Tuesday and underwent the MRI the following day.
Street will not appear in any Cactus League games this spring. He recently signed a three-year, $22.5 million contract after he converted 35 of 37 saves last season.
