MLB Trade Rumors 2011: Huston Street Drawing Interest From Six Teams, According To Report

The Colorado Rockies are likely to trade former closer Huston Street this offseason since they have Rafael Betancourt to keep the role he assumed in August (though the Rockies reportedly might have interest in Colorado native Brad Lidge). The Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles have been previously linked with the Rockies, but now Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman adds four more teams to the mix: the Miami Marlins, the Boston Red Sox, the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Mets.

The New York Post had reported the Mets' interest in Street earlier in the week, but it seems the team does not want to give up pitcher Mike Pelfrey and that there are concerns of a potential conflict between Street and the Mets' new bench coach, Bob Geren. Street and Geren are no fans of each other after their days in Oakland.

The closer market hasn't fully developed yet, so Street won't move until some of the free agents start to sign.
