Huston Street Gets $14 Million Extension From San Diego

San Diego Padres NewsHuston Street is comfortable pitching in San Diego, and today the San Diego Padres gave Street 14 million more reasons to be more comfortable.

The Padres and Street have agreed to a $14 million two-year contract extension that will carry him through the 2014 season.

Street is 2-0 on the season and pitching to a 0.91 ERA and has converted all 17 save opportunities in his first year with the Padres.

“You find a place that you’re comfortable with, obvious success makes you feel more comfortable, but also the team, my teammates, wanting to be a teammate with these guys for an extended period of time,” Street said. “It’s a two-year deal with an option so if the team picks up that option it’s three years, that’ll be four years here in San Diego, at least. I think the organization itself is a bunch of people that I like, that I like being around, that I want to go play for and ultimately you have to believe in that, you have to believe in everybody involved.” Street said

Earlier this month the Padres agreed to a three-year $27 million extension with slugger Carlos Quentin.  “He’s a proven middle-of-the-order bat that we need. He brings an intensity, an edge, and a swagger to our team that we need.” said Padres general manager Josh Byrnes of Carlos Quentin

Third baseman Chase Headley is drawing lots of attention from other teams in this trade market leading up to the deadline. Headley is under team control until 2015.
