The Los Angeles Angels and closer Huston Street have agreed to a two-year contract extension that includes a club option for a third-year, the team announced today. The deal is worth a guaranteed $18 million and contains a $1 million buyout, according to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times.

Street, 31, has represented himself since 2012, but hired agent Alan Hendricks to handle negotiations when the season began.

Street has been with the Angels since 2014, after being acquired in a mid-season trade with the San Diego Padres.

In 2014 with the Angels, Street was lights out, as he went 1-2 with 17 saves, a 1.71 ERA and 23/7 strikeout-to-walk ratio. With both the Angels and Padres, he went 2-2 with 41 saves, a 1.37 ERA and 57/14 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Street has been a good option this season, but has struggled of late. This season, he is 2-1 with 11 saves, a 3.29 ERA and 15/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
