DENVER -- Colorado Rockies closer Huston Street is ready to pitch after recovering from an abdominal injury earlier this week.

Street was hurt Tuesday when he was hit by a ball off the bat of teammate Ian Stewart during batting practice.

Rockies manager Jim Tracy says Street worked out with trainer Keith Dugger on Thursday morning. He also threw off the bullpen mound and everything felt fine.

Street missed the first 69 games of the season recovering from an inflamed right shoulder. Since his return on June 22, Street has saved six games in seven chances.
