DALLAS (AP) - The Colorado Rockies have sent closer Huston Street and cash to the San Diego Padres.
The Rockies get a player to be named and cash in the trade announced Wednesday at baseball's winter meetings.
The 28-year-old Street had 29 saves in 33 chances for Colorado in 2011. He was 1-4 with a 3.86 ERA in 62 games.
The right-hander has 178 saves in seven seasons with Colorado and the Oakland Athletics.
Street is the second closer to get traded this week. The Chicago White Sox sent Sergio Santos to Toronto on Tuesday.
