Street 'bummed' about setback with left calf injury
LOS ANGELES -- After throwing two bullpen sessions last week, All-Star closer Huston Street made the decision to ramp up his recovery from a left calf strain by doing some sprints last Thursday.

That proved to be a bad idea, as Street experienced soreness in his calf, a setback that has aggravated him to no end.

"It's frustrating because you want to play," said Street, who has been on the disabled list since Aug. 11. "If I could figure a way to crawl to first [base] fast enough, I'll do it."

Street's arm is fine, but the team is still cautious about his ability to run and make cuts on the strained calf, which feels considerably better than it did two weeks ago.

"We're going day to day until we get a plan," Street said.

San Diego manager Bud Black certainly sympathized with Street, who was the Padres' lone All-Star and has missed a total of 50 games with two DL stints. He missed 29 games earlier in the season with a strained right lat muscle.

"He's a little bummed," Black said. "He thought he'd make a quick recovery based on where he was last week. But it's the break to cover a bunt or cover first, that's something that's getting him."
