ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels closer Huston Street has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left oblique muscle.

The Angels announced the move Thursday.

Street injured himself while warming up Wednesday. The 32-year-old veteran has converted all five of his save opportunities this season with a 1.17 ERA, allowing just four hits and one run over nine appearances.

The Angels are uncertain how long Street will be out. Their new closer will be eighth-inning specialist Joe Smith, who earned the save Wednesday night when Los Angeles completed a three-game sweep of defending World Series champion Kansas City.

The Angels will call up a reliever on Friday. They have the day off Thursday before opening a six-game road trip at Texas.
