Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Sep 16

We’re down to the final two weeks of the 2014 season and while I personally can’t wait for the offseason to begin (to enhance our offerings for 2015!) we still have daily baseball to cover! Here are Tuesday’s rankings: Nate Eovaldi will travel to Citi Field to take on the Mets. While “average” is about the nicest thing you can say about Eovaldi’s last two months of work...

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...

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...
