Street, Angels having ‘good dialogue’ on extension …

Huston Street, who serves as his own agent, has been having “on and off” conversations with the Angels about a potential contract extension since December and said Thursday that both sides are “on the same path.”

There is no firm deadline for when an extension has to be agreed upon, Street said, but there’s a mutual understanding that they won’t let negotiations drag on into the season if they aren’t finalizing a contract.

The Angels exercised their $7 million contract option on Street shortly after the season, and now the 31-year-old right-hander is slated to go into free agency next offseason. Both sides, however, would like to get a deal done before then.

Street is looking for a four-year deal, but one that would probably rip apart his 2015 salary and carry him through the 2018 season. The Angels are looking at three years. Street believes something between what Andrew Miller signed with the Yankees (four years, $36 million) and what David Robertson got with the White Sox (four years, $46 million) would be fair.

Street is coming off a career year, posting a 1.37 ERA and saving 41 games.
