Street making case for return to All-Star Game
By Corey Brock and Will Laws / MLB.com
SAN FRANCISCO -- It may seem hard to believe, but Padres closer Huston Street never earned a trip to the All-Star Game as a member of the A's or the Rockies.
Could he make it a second time with the Padres?
Street, who was picked to the National League All-Star team in 2012, the Padres' lone representative that season, looks like the smart -- and deserving -- pick again this season.
Going into Tuesday's game against the Giants, Street ranked sixth in the National League with 20 saves, in 20 opportunities. His ERA after 28 appearances is 0.96.
Since 2012, he has the best save percentage (96.2 percent) in the big leagues.
Street can only make the team as a manager's pick, with the players' vote or as a Final Vote candidate.
It's not too late to make a push for Padres on the NL ballot.
San Diego players on the ballot include shortstop Everth Cabrera, first baseman Yonder Alonso, second baseman Jedd Gyorko, third baseman Chase Headley, catcher Yasmani Grandal and outfielders Chris Denorfia, Seth Smith, Carlos Quentin and Will Venable.
Fans can cast their votes for starters at MLB.com -- online or on a mobile device -- using the 2014 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot Sponsored by Experian until Thursday, July 3, at 8:59 p.m. PT. The 2014 All-Star Game will be played at Target Field on Tuesday, July 15, on FOX.
Renfroe, Guerrero named to Futures Game rosters
Two Padres were named to rosters for the 2014 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game on Tuesday, with outfielder Hunter Renfroe being selected to the U.S. Team and pitcher Tayron Guerrero chosen for the World Team.
Renfroe was leading the California League in home runs (16) for Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore this season and was named to the California League's Mid-Season All-Star Team before he was promoted to Double-A San Antonio last week.
"I think he's definitely gonna play in the big leagues for a long time," said Lake Elsinore hitting coach Jody Davis, a former big league catcher. "San Diego needs the offense. They're not scoring a lot of runs. And he can definitely produce runs."
Renfroe, a 2013 first-round pick, homered in his second game with the Missions and has a combined slash line of .284/.360/.547 with both teams in 2014.
"I'm just seeing the ball a lot better," Renfroe said. "The balls are coming easy to me now since the first part of the year, when I kind of struggled a little and was striking out a good bit."
Guerrero, one of two Colombians selected to the World Team, starred out of Fort Wayne's (Class A) bullpen in the first half this season before he was also promoted last week to Lake Elsinore.
Guerrero, who signed with the Padres as a non-drafted free agent in December 2009, has racked up 44 strikeouts in 37 2/3 innings (27 games) this year to go along with his 6-1 record and 0.96 ERA. He was selected to the Midwest League's Mid-Season All-Star squad before his promotion.
