Josh Collmenter takes loss Monday vs. Mets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter surrendered three earned runs on five hits and one walk in four innings while striking out three in his team's 7-3 loss to the Mets Monday.

Collmenter (0-1) threw 53 pitches while picking up a save in his last outing as he got stretched out in preparation to join the rotation, but his first start didn't go too well, as he threw 73 pitches (49 strikes) while taking the loss. He'll face the Dodgers Sunday.


Josh Collmenter ready to replace Randall Delgado in rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter isn't worried about moving into the rotation Monday against the Mets, even though he hasn't been a full-time starter since 2011. Collmenter takes the rotation spot of Randall Delgado, who has been moved to the bullpen after going 0-1 with an 11.05 ERA in two starts.

"It's not a big deal," he said, per The Arizona Republic. "The preparation is pretty much the exact same (as long relief out of the bullpen). Anytime I go out there, usually I get to throw multiple innings. Now I just know the exact day I pitch. That's really the only thing that changes."


Report: Diamondbacks preparing to shuffle rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) Diamondbacks long reliever Josh Collmenter appears destined to transition into a starting role, according to the Arizona Republic. He would replace struggling Randall Delgado or Trevor Cahill in the rotation.

No Arizona starter boasts an earned run average lower than 4.05. Delgado, who was clobbered again Thursday night, owns an ERA of 10.13 and 2.88 WHIP in three outings. Cahill owns an ERA of 7.90, but Delgado is considered more likely to be ousted from the rotation.

The struggles of the starting five have played the most significant role in the team's 3-8 start. The team has a 5.86 ERA, but Collmenter has yielded just two earned runs in eight innings.


Josh Collmenter records four-inning save Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter earned the first save of his major-league career Wednesday, pitching four scoreless innings in his team's 7-3 win over the Giants.

Collmenter gave up three hits and one walk in the excellent relief effort while striking out four. He's being stretched out in anticipation of joining the rotation in the near future.


Josh Collmenter could be headed to rotation


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) The Diamondbacks could be shifting pitcher Josh Collmenter to the rotation, the Arizona Republic reports.

Collmenter will have to get stretched out first, starting with an extended relief appearance in the next few games. He will likely replace one of Trevor Cahill or Randall Delgado, with the bumped pitcher heading to the bullpen.


Josh Collmenter signs two-year deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) The Diamondbacks have avoided arbitration with pitcher Josh Collmenter by signing him to a two-year, $2.425-million deal that includes one club option and one mutual option, FOXSports.com reports.

The deal can be worth as much as $6.5 million if both options are exercised. Collmenter was eligible for arbitration for the first time this offseason after going 5-5 with a 3.13 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 85:33 K:BB ratio in 92 innings over 49 relief appearances last season.


Josh Collmenter could move to setup role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2013) 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."


Josh Collmenter carries the load out of 'pen


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2013) 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
(6/19/2013) 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
(6/10/2013) 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
(4/4/2013) 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.


Collmenter working on 'pen role


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2013) Diamondbacks relief pitcher Josh Collmenter allowed two run and three hits over two innings during Arizona's Cactus League contest against San Francisco on Sunday. Collmenter, who was making his second start of the spring, permitted both runs in the first inning as his ERA grew to 4.50 during exhibition play. He failed to record a strikeout after fanning two batters in his debut last Tuesday and did not issue a walk.
