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

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.

D-backs' Collmenter thriving in relief role

PHOENIX -- In baseball, as with anything else, no one ever wants to lose his job. Such was the case with Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter, who was bumped from the rotation to the bullpen after just four starts. Collmenter took the demotion in stride, though, embracing his new role as a reliever and has thrived since making the switch. "It's helped me get back on track...
