|Josh Collmenter could move to setup role |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/3/13) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Tuesday he might consider using reliever Josh Collmenter in a setup role, according to The Arizona Republic.
"We’ve given up too many leads," Gibson said. "We had talks about moving that around. What’s the best way? How do we get there? … We know (Collmenter) has the mentality to adjust wherever he goes."

(6/19/13) With starter Trevor Cahill leaving Wednesday's game against the Marlins due to a hip injury, the Diamondbacks needed a big lift from their bullpen. It came in the form of Josh Collmenter, who tossed six one-hit innings in a 3-1 win.
Collmenter, who had not pitched since June 12, needed just 78 pitches to work his six scoreless innings, limiting the Marlins to one hit and one walk. He struck out seven batters as well.
"It was a great performance," manager Kirk Gibson told ArizonaSports.com after the game. "He was really rolling there. He had the magic wand out there and got rolling."
Despite Collmenter's big game out of the bullpen, he was saddled with a no-decision, as the Diamondbacks did not score until after he left the game. Collmenter now has a 2.43 ERA on the season, while working mostly in long relief.
|Josh Collmenter a worthy deep league pickup |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(6/19/13) Josh Collmenter made his 18th appearance for the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, as he relieved Trevor Cahill, who exited with a hip injury. Watching him dispatch the Marlins in the second inning, I was reminded of what an underappreciated Fantasy pitcher Collmenter is.
Effective long relievers like Collmenter can be valuable in points leagues, especially deeper ones in which owners have to find value after all the reliable sources of saves have dried up. While many owners target closers-in-waiting, Collmenter is a better choice than many of the set-up men who are more popular than him. For example, Collmenter has outgained Junichi Tazawa, Trevor Rosenthal, David Robertson and Ryan Cook in Fantasy points, though he is in far fewer leagues. He's getting strikeouts and popups, is capable of a low walk rate, and he's been averaging two innings per appearance.
Just as you would stash a setup man for the future promise of saves, Collmenter could possibly find his way into the rotation and give you starts. Even if he doesn't, Collmenter offers enough production in a long relief role that he should be owned in a larger share of deeper points leagues.
|Josh Collmenter could join rotation |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/10/13) The Diamondbacks are leaning toward replacing Tyler Skaggs in the rotation with Josh Collmenter, according to the Arizona Republic.
Skaggs was optioned Monday to Triple-A, leaving a hole in the rotation, though the team will skip his next start and wait until Tuesday to replace him. Collmenter has been used as a long reliever this season, but he's made 35 starts between 2011 and 2012.
It is not clear if Collmenter's stay in the rotation would be permanent if it does happen.
|Josh Collmenter gets win in extra innings |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/4/13) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter tossed five strong innings to get the win in Arizona's wild 16-inning game against the Cardinals.
Collmenter gave up four hits, one run, and had five strikeouts in the game. He's seen time as both a starter and reliever in his major-league career, but will pitch primarily out of the bullpen this season. As he showed Wednesday, Collmenter can go multiple innings, allowing other Diamondbacks pitchers to get some rest.
The team already has plenty of candidates for the rotation, and other high-leverage relievers, so Collmenter isn't expected to jump into a significant role this year.
