The Los Angeles Angels are targeting San Diego Padres closer Huston Street and right-handed starter Ian Kennedy in attempts to bolster their pitching staff for the second half of the season, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports

According to the report, the teams have discussed Street but not Kennedy. Both pitchers are under contract through 2015. 

Street has recorded 24 saves with a 1.09 ERA and a 0.76 WHIP this season and was added to the All-Star Game this week.

Kennedy is 7-9 with a 3.47 ERA and 133 strikeouts in 124.1 innings.

The Angels enter the All-Star break having won five in a row and nine of their last 10 games to close to within 1.5 games of the first-place Oakland Athletics in the American League West.

The Padres are 41-54 and sit at third place in the NL West.

More from FOX Sports:

The Padres likely will trade their potential free agents, third baseman Chase Headley and outfielder Chris Denorfia. They are taking offers for both Street and setup man Joaquin Benoit. But they are "lukewarm" on moving Kennedy, sources say.
