The 2-1 putout isn't a common one in baseball; most of the ones that do occur are on wild pitchespassed balls that result in the pitcher covering the plate. So how does a pitcher record a 2-1 putout on a ball that never touches the ground?
Diamondbacks reliever Josh Collmenter did just that in Sunday's game against the Marlins -- with an assist (literally) from catcher Miguel Montero following a phenomenal effort on a bunt by Adeinny Hechavarria. After Montero dived and popped the ball up into the air just before it hit the ground, Collmenter tried to barehand it, juggled it -- while leaping over the sliding Montero -- and then pulled it with his bare hand on the second try.
Check it out:
A candidate for catch of the year, no question -- and it might be the only tag-team submission.

Diamondbacks right fielder Gerardo Parra is widely known to have one of the best arms in all of baseball. Over the past three seasons, while playing mostly in a part-time role in Arizona's crowded outfield, Parra has totaled nine, 12 and eight assists, with the middle number coming in 2011, when he earned his first Gold Glove.
He also already has six assists this year, leading...

Gerardo Parra is putting up All-Star numbers. Alright, I guess it’s finally time to admit it: I’ve been wrong all season about Gerardo Parra.
Arizona's 1-0 win over the Miami Marlins gave the Diamondbacks a record of 25-18 and a one game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the NL West. The one run came courtesy of a solo home run by Gerardo Parra in the first inning.
What does that have to do with Pete Rose? Well, the home run--and only run--came on the first pitch of the game. The last time that happened...
The next time the man known as “Bear Jew” has a week like this, I hope he’s not owned by the guy who is hot on my tail in fantasy baseball.
There was no other player who could win the inaugural Hard Hittin’ Mark Whiten Memorial award. We won’t do an honorable mention today partly because we’re at work, and partly because Bear Jew really did that good of a job steamrolling...
The Arizona Diamondbacks have become known for their under-the-radar pitching staff these last few years. Whether it was Ian Kennedy’s break-out 2011 season, Wade Miley’s ROY-runner up 2012 season, or Patrick Corbin’s 6-0 start this season (hopefully that becomes 7-0 after tonight’s game).
They don’t all have the skills of Justin Verlander, or the super-star status of players...
Mark Teahen asked for and was given his unconditional release by the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. Struggling for their Triple-A Reno minor league farm club, a change of scenery could help. While he probably will be able to find another club to give him a shot, he does come with some risks as he did fail a physical a few weeks back.

Facing an offensively challenged Miami team that's been particularly bad against left-handers lately, Wade Miley appears to be in a good spot to rebound from his worst outing of the season.
Miley will try to keep the Marlins' bats quiet and lead the Diamondbacks to their fifth straight win in the finale of a three-game series at Marlins Park on Sunday.
The D-backs (25-18...
DENVER (AP) -- Patrick Corbin tossed a three-hitter for his first complete game and struck out a career-high 10, leading the Diamondbacks to a 5-1 win over the Rockies on Monday night.
Corbin (7-0) joined Randy Johnson as the only lefties in team history to begin the season 7-0. He also turned in his club-record ninth straight start in which he's pitched at least six innings...
Brandon McCarthy was dominant on Saturday, blanking the Miami Marlins for his first win not only with the Arizona Diamondbacks, but also since being struck in the head with an Erick Aybar line-drive on August 5, 2012 against the Los Angeles Angels.
McCarthy registered his third career shutout (his first since September 3, 2011 against the Seattle Mariners) in a 1-0 victory over the...
