Street Reinstated; Decker, Layne Optioned 

Huston Street

Huston Street

In accordance with the acquisition of Pedro Ciriaco from earlier today, the Padres have made a handful of roster moves including optioning LHP Tommy Layne and OF Jaff Decker to Triple-A Tucson. Decker was called up from Triple-A on Wednesday but did not make an appearance in a game during his first Major League stint. Layne has appeared in six games for the Padres this season, giving up one earned run over 5.2 innings pitched. Ciriaco will be on hand for Friday night’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at 7:10pm.

In addition to the optioning of Decker and Layne, the Padres have re-instated closing pitcher Huston Street from the 15-day DL. Street hit the disabled list on June 1st (Retroactive to May 30th) due to a strained left calf muscle. Street appeared in relief during a rehab stint with Single-A Lake Elsinore, and pitched a scoreless inning.

Street has been a mixture of consistent and inconsistent this season, converting 11 saves in 12 opportunities while also compiling a 0-3 record with a 4.43 ERA. Street has given up 10 earned runs while also striking out 12 and walking 8 this season. Since being acquired by the Padres last season, Street has converted 34 saves out of 36 opportunities with a 2.73 ERA.

Both Street and Ciriaco will be available to play Friday Night against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
