Huston Street's unfortunate string of injuries has plagued him once again, as the veteran closer will be shut down for the next three to four weeks with a lat strain, general manager Billy Eppler told Pedro Moura of the LA Times.

Street's latest injury makes it unlikely he'll be ready to pitch for the Los Angeles Angeles on Opening Day, which is an unfortunate start to the season for the 33-year-old after he was limited to only 26 games in 2016 due to knee surgery.

The right-hander exited Friday's spring training game in the third inning, and was initially diagnosed with right triceps irritation. Street underwent an MRI and additional testing confirmed it was in fact a lat strain.

If Street is unable to pitch on Opening Day, right-hander Andrew Bailey could become the team's closer to start the season - a spot he's familiar with after converting six saves for the Angels last year in Street's absence.
