The Los Angeles Angels have acquired Huston Street from the San Diego Padres, both teams announced on Friday night. The Padres will receive prospects Taylor Lindsey, Jose Rondon, R.J. Alvarez and an Elliot Morris in exchange for Street and minor league pitcher Trevor Gott. The deal is likely to be announced after the Padres' game this evening.

The Angels have reportedly been pursuing Street and Padres starter Ian Kennedy in recent days, but the sides were said not to be matching up on a deal for Kennedy. Instead of a bigger deal involving Kennedy, the Angels will part with a good chunk of their farm system to solidify their bullpen with the addition of an All-Star closer in Street.

Street, who recently said that he expected either himself or teammate Joaquin Benoit to be dealt before the trade deadline, has posted a 1.09 ERA and 24 saves in 33 innings with the Padres this season. He has reportedly drawn interest from teams looking for bullpen help such as the Pirates, Orioles and Giants, but now will join an Angels bullpen that has received a boost from new additions Jason Grilli and Joe Thatcher in the last couple of weeks. He will immediately become the team's closer, replacing Joe Smith, who has been strong in the role since taking over for Ernesto Frieri. Street is under team control for next season due to the $7M team option on his contract for 2015.
