Fatigue might be reason behind Josh Collmenter's struggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Josh Collmenter suffered a second straight loss Sunday at Miami, but his struggles have actually spanned the last month. The right-hander is 0-2 with an 8.50 ERA in his last four starts.

Collmenter told reporters and the coaching staff he is OK, but his recent struggles haven't gone unnoticed.

"We're going to have to re-evaluate if it's something going forward that we need to be concerned about," pitching coach Mike Harkey said, per The Arizona Republic. "We'll figure it out. He says he feels good. We don't want to hurt anybody. But if he says he feels good, you're usually not going to make a determination on one start. We'll have to look at a few of them and see what happens."

Collmenter didn't dispute the fact that fatigue might be settling in after throwing just 92 innings in relief last season.

"I haven't thrown this many innings in over a year, so it could be," Collmenter said. "But I try to do everything to be ready to throw a lot of innings, whether it's out of the 'pen or as a starter. It could have something to do with it. I'm not so sure."

Josh Collmenter shutout a glimpse of what could be


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/30/2014) Who is Josh Collmenter, other than the pitcher who made the biggest splash Thursday by throwing a complete game shutout?

He's a command specialist whose low walk rate has yielded a 1.08 WHIP.

He's a pitch-to-contact type whose fly ball tendencies make him susceptible to the home run.

He's a converted reliever who began this year in the bullpen after spending all of last year there.

He's the author of only three quality starts all season.

How is that possible? A lack of innings, mainly. Thursday's shutout was just the fourth time he went six or more in nine tries. And while you might assume the early hooks are the result of him building up his pitch count after beginning the year in the bullpen, the 94 pitches he threw Thursday were in line with his other starts. He was just extra efficient with them, facing the minimum 27 batters in his nine innings.

In other words, Thursday's start may not be a sign of things to come for Collmenter. With more innings, he could be another Bronson Arroyo, but right now, the only reason to own him in standard mixed leagues is the ability to start him at relief pitcher.
