Street throws impressive rehab outing

PHOENIX -- The Rockies had rehabbing closer Huston Street start Friday night's game for Triple-A Colorado Springs on a 25-pitch limit. He didn't need nearly that many.

Street used 12 pitches to retire Reno during a perfect first inning, with one strikeout.

It was the first game of a new rehab assignment for Street, who was placed on the disabled list to start the season because of right shoulder inflammation and then suffered a groin strain in his second rehab game for Double-A Tulsa.

In another development, the Rockies placed pitcher Greg Smith on the Colorado Springs disabled list with a left shoulder injury. He was removed from Thursday night's game after throwing 28 pitches. Rockies manager Jim Tracy said he is not sure the specifics of the injury.
