The Padres are sending Street and pitcher Trevor Gott to the Angels. Gott was the Padres’ sixth-round pick in the 2013 MLB Draft.

This is the second trade the Angels made in recent weeks to get bullpen help. Angels GM Jerry DiPoto has acquired Jason Grilli from the Pittsburgh Pirates and Joe Thatcher from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Street would move into the Angels’ closer role. Joe Smith will be moved to the setup role.

He is due the remainder of his $7 million contract this season. The 30-year-old also has a club option for $7 million, which is expected to be picked up by the Angels.

This season, Street is 1-0 with 24 saves in 33 games. He has a 1.09 ERA with a 0.76 WHIP and 34 strikeouts to 7 walks.

The Angels hope that these changes will improve their team over the second half of the season. We will have to wait and see how things pan out over the final weeks of the season.
