The Los Angeles Angels with be without their All-Star closer for the foreseeable future after the team placed right-hander Huston Street on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a strained left oblique.

Street suffered the injury warming up before Wednesday's contest against the Kansas City Royals.

"It just kind of happened," Street told reporters. "I was like, 'What was that?' I made one more throw and I was like, 'There's definitely something in there.'"

Los Angeles will turn to right-hander Joe Smith, who saved 15 games for the Angels in 2014, to take Street's role.

"When you can't pitch, that's all you really care about - that when your job comes up, they get it done," Street said. "Joe's proven he can do that."

The 32-year-old Street has saved 320 games across his 12-year career, including 62 as a member of the Angels.
