"I didn't even pick up a ball for 11 days, and we hoped the long layoff would eliminate the problem, but it didn't," said Street.
Street said there is frustration because he has never had an arm problem that has lingered like this one.
"I've had arm things that come and go," he said. "Even last year, when I had the biceps problem, after three weeks I was back and ready. That hasn't happened this time."
With Street opening the season on the disabled list, the Rockies plan to use lefty Franklin Morales as the closer. Morales was 6 for 6 in that role during Street's absence last September.
