Corey Brock is reporting on the latest setback at spring training, and it's all about closer Huston Street's nether regions.
#Padres CL Huston Street dealing with a slight groin pull. He would have pitched this week. Pushed back, not considered serious.— Corey Brock (@FollowThePadres) March 3, 2014
If it really is just a minor pull, this shouldn't affect Street's spring at all. Reliever Alex Torres already had a delayed start to his spring training due to his visa issues, but he'll be ready in plenty of time for opening day because relief pitchers don't need nearly the amount of warmup time that starters do. In the absolute worst case, Joaquin Benoit will be more than capable of filling in as closer, but that likely won't be necessary. Huston just needs a few days to rest, in which time I assume he'll be the butt of every joke in the locker room.
