Huston Street Reacting Well to Drug Regimen

An intense regimen of anti-inflammatory drugs to ease Athletics closer Huston Street's ulnareuritis evidently is agreeable to the young hurler, as he reports little or no intestinal discomfort as a side effect. The treatment will greatly accelerate his recovery.

That's the good news. The bad news is that even though Street has begun some light throwing, he'll be lucky to return to unrestricted action by the middle of July, and may even need to rehabilitate into early August before being completely ready to retake the mound.

Until such time as Street returns, it remains uncertain how quickly he will round out to form.
