Huston Street Trade: Colorado Rockies Trade Huston Street To San Diego Padres For PTBNL

It appears to be a done deal. The Colorado Rockies have sent reliever Huston Street to the San Diego Padres for a Player To Be Named Later.

The Padres appear to be absorbing the entire $7.5mil that Street was owed for 2012 and the buyout for his 2013 option. In exchange, they will be sending a lesser prospect back to Colorado.

Between the Chris Iannetta, Ty Wigginton, and Huston Street trades, the Rockies have almost $13mil in budget space -- money that can be used on a impact free agent. The Hot Stove just became even hotter for Colorado.
