Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter shuts out Giants on Friday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter threw a complete game shutout to defeat the Giants on Friday.

Over the nine innings of work, Collmenter gave up four hits while striking out two and walking one. He is the first pitcher to toss a complete game this season.

Collmenter had failed to get past the fifth inning in each of his previous starts this season and was 0-2 with a 6.52 ERA heading into the game. He was able to lower his ERA to 3.86. He had one complete game shutout during the entire 2014 season.

His next scheduled start is expected to be Friday against the Pirates.


D-backs' Harkey wants better fastball command from Collmenter


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Diamondbacks pitching coach Mike Harkey said Thursday that pitcher Josh Collmenter's early struggles can be chalked up in large part to poor fastball command, the Arizona Republic reports.

"The good thing about Josh is, he's been able to limit (damage) – he could have easily given up 15 or 20 runs by now, but he's made pitches when he had to make pitches," Harkey said. "Now he just needs to make pitches before he has to make them."

Collmenter's velocity is down as well, but Harkey said he isn't concerned with that at this point.

"I'm not really worried about Josh's velocity right now," Harkey said. "He's going to pitch on eight days next time, with two off days coming up (next week). He'll get plenty of rest. I would expect his velocity to be around the same as what it always is tomorrow."

Collmenter, who is set to face the Giants Friday, has posted a 6.52 ERA and 5 2/3 innings while surrendering 19 hits in 9 2/3 innings.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter gave up three earned runs in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Dodgers. 

Collmenter went five innings and allowed nine hits. He walked one batter, struck out another and gave up a home run to Yasiel Puig. In two games through the first week of the regular season, Collmenter holds an ERA of 7.45. 

''I've got to make better pitches,'' Collmenter said, via the Associated Press. ''Even the ones that aren't getting a lot of the bat, they are getting enough of it so I have to put them in a better location.''

Collmenter's next start is projected for Friday against the Giants.

D-Backs' Hale says Archie Bradley still in mix for rotation spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale acknowledged again Thursday the team is still considering Archie Bradley for the rotation, even after announcing its rotation plans earlier this week, per The Arizona Republic. The Diamondbacks' Opening Day rotation consists of Josh Collmenter, Jeremy Hellickson, Rubby De La Rosa, Trevor Cahill and Chase Anderson.

Hale said Bradley has "really made the decision tough on us" following a strong spring campaign. Bradley went 3-2 with a 1.61 ERA in six spring outings (four starts). He had 14 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings.

Hale added the team has not talked about a six-man rotation. Also, putting Bradley in the bullpen as a long reliever remains an option as well.

Bradley was a consensus top-10 prospect heading into 2014, but struggled last season and has taken a slight tumble down the rankings this season. Baseball America has him ranked as the 25th-best prospect and MLB.com has him at No. 15 heading into the season.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) The Diamondbacks announced that Chase Anderson, Trevor Cahill, Josh Collmenter, Rubby De La Rosa and Jeremy Hellickson will fill out the five-man rotation to start the season

With Cahill and Anderson making the rotation, Daniel Hudson will move to the bullpen. According to MLB.com, a final decision on the order of the rotation has yet to be determined.

However, Collmenter is expected to start on Opening Day and De La Rosa is the most likely candidate to pitch the second game. Hellickson is slated to start the third, leaving the coaching staff a decision to make on which games Anderson and Cahill will start. 


Diamondbacks name pitcher Josh Collmenter opening day starter


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale announced Sunday pitcher Josh Collmenter will be the team's opening day starter.

"To be the one to toe the rubber the first time is pretty special," Collmenter said.

"He's earned it," Hale said, per FOXSportsArizona.com.


Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter in contention to start opening day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter threw a strong two innings Saturday against the Mariners. He's making enough of an impression on manager Chip Hale that he's throwing his name into contention for opening day, reports AZCentral.com.

"We're not ready to announce anything yet," Hale said, smiling. "But Collmenter's in the mix."

Collmenter would love to get the opportunity to start opening day.

"Just to be mentioned in that is pretty special with everything that goes into Opening Day and the spectacle that it is," he said. "It would be fun to take the ball for the team and really get the season off and running."


Diamondbacks' Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster tabbed to start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart indicated Friday that pitchers Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster are in line to pitch in the rotation in 2015, MLB.com reports. The two pitchers were acquired from the Red Sox in a trade that was announced Friday.

An earlier report stated that Stewart indicated that Josh Collmenter would start the regular-season opener, but he just happened to be the first name listed by the general manager when discussing the team's rotation plans. The team could still choose to bring in more starting pitching help, especially after clearing significant salary by trading away two veterans this week. Currently, Collmenter is lone holdover in the Diamondbacks rotation after the team acquired De La Rosa, Webster and Jeremy Hellickson to fill three spots.

Fatigue might be reason behind Josh Collmenter's struggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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."
