Street throws smoothly, should return Sunday
Rockies reliever Huston Street’s simulated game at Chase Field on Friday went well, and he expects to be available for Sunday’s finale of the three-game set with the D-backs.
“I threw betweern 25 and 27 pitches, plus another 22 in the bullpen before — it was like a game, but a really long inning,” Street said. “It was basically the longest inning I’ve thrown in a long time, which was good. My stuff was there. The ball was coming out nicely. It was definitely a good thing.”
The Rockies are expected to return Street to the closer role but not until letting him re-acclimate himself to game action. Expect left-hander Franklin Morales to handle save situations until that time.
