Troy E. Renck of The Denver Post reports that the Rockies have told closer Huston Street that they will discuss a multi-year deal with him after their final game. Renck estimates that it will require a three-year deal in the range of $25MM to "get discussions going."
Last year, the Rockies avoided going to arbitration with Street by signing him to a one-year deal worth $4.5MM. This time around, the 26-year-old is entering his final year of arbitration and is in line to make something in the neighborhood of $7MM for 2010.
Over the last three seasons, Street has registered an ERA of 3.27 with 10.0 K/9. The young fireman could improve his bargaining position even more with a strong postseason.
