Collmenter looks like he belongs as 2015 D-backs focus on pitching

PHOENIX -- Once again Sunday, Josh Collmenter pitched like a man who belongs in the Diamondbacks' starting rotation in 2015. He was sharp and efficient, as he was in his final seven starts. After giving up one run and three hits in eight innings Sunday, Collmenter had a 1.26 ERA since Aug. 22, trailing only San Francisco's Jake Peavy (1.17) and Pittsburgh's Francisco...

Collmenter wants to stay a starter

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter has had an up and down career. While he’s posted solid numbers throughout his career the DBacks have not found a permanent spot for him. He’s appeared in 140 games, starting 62 while coming out of the bullpen for the other 78. He’s had success no matter what role they’ve thrown at him but the one he prefers is to start. In 2014...

Arizona Diamondbacks: roster expansion upcoming

Baseball season is winding down and for some teams the season can’t end soon enough. For teams out of contention, there aren’t many reasons for fans to continue coming to games or watching their team. But Major League Baseball adds a fun wrinkle to September that makes the game much more interesting. On September 1st rosters will expand from 25 to 40 players. It gives teams out...

WATCH: Josh Collmenter faces minimum 27 batters in complete game shutout

Your browser does not support iframes.   Josh Collmenter’s start last night was absolutely brilliant. He faced the minimum of 27 batters against the Reds last night, allowing only three hits in his first career complete game shutout. It is just the 13th time that has happened in a non-perfect game since 1914. I would say that moving Josh back into the starting rotation has payed...

Collmenter dominates Reds in making history

PHOENIX -- Diamondbacks starting pitcher Josh Collmenter did something Thursday night that had been done only once before in team history -- by Randy Johnson on May 18, 2004. No, Collmenter didn't pitch a perfect game as Johnson did in Atlanta, but he came as close as a pitcher can while giving up three hits. In a 4-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds, Collmenter hurled the first...

Which pitcher? Arizona Diamondbacks search for rotation help

Since day one of the MLB offseason, Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers has been an open book about his offseason intentions. It was no secret that Arizona would pursue a power bat, bullpen help and a frontline starter to act as a staff ace for the ballclub. Although the grocery list was short, it has nonetheless kept Towers very busy. After acquiring slugger Mark Trumbo...

D-backs, Collmenter avoid arbitration with 2-year deal

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks and right-handed reliever Josh Collmenter have avoided arbitration by agreeing on a $2,425,000, two-year contract. Collmenter was 5-5 with a 3.13 ERA in 49 games last season. He led all NL relievers with 92 innings pitched and a club-record nine relief appearances of at least three innings. His 29 extra innings pitched were the most by a major...

Collmenter makes perhaps catch of the year

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...

Collmenter draws praise for 'icy' bounceback

PHOENIX -- A red t-shirt with "USA" in blue lettering hung from Josh Collmenter's locker Friday night to honor the opening of the Olympic Games. The Diamondbacks pitcher also walked to the plate twice Friday with the Olympic theme playing. Collmenter's performance in the D-backs' 11-5 win over the Mets was hardly medal worthy, but his effort to keep his team...
