Street rejoins Angels; Morin sent to minors, Guerra dropped

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Angels have reinstated closer Huston Street from the disabled list.

The Angels announced Street's return from a five-week injury absence Monday night.

The Angels recalled left-hander Chris Jones from Triple-A Salt Lake. Reliever Deolis Guerra was designated for assignment, and reliever Mike Morin was optioned to Salt Lake.

Street hasn't pitched since April 23 due to a strained oblique muscle. The veteran has five saves with a 1.17 ERA.

Los Angeles dropped Guerra one day after he pitched two hitless extra innings against Houston. Morin was sent to the minors after giving up pinch-hitter Carlos Correa's three-run homer in the 13th inning of Los Angeles' 8-6 loss.

Jones is 3-4 with a 6.32 ERA in nine starts for Salt Lake this season.
