D-Backs' Josh Collmenter top candidate to start this Saturday


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that pitcher Josh Collmenter is the favorite to start this Saturday's game against the Rockies, according to FOX Sports Arizona. 

Collmenter could draw the nod with Allen Webster being optioned to Triple-A on Tuesday. Webster struggled in his four starts with Arizona, postin ga 7.11 ERA. 

Collmenter, for the 2015 season, is 3-6 with a 5.09 ERA. 


Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter ousted from rotation


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Diamondbacks starter Josh Collmenter is moving to the bullpen, manager Chip Hale announced following Friday's game. Collmenter was in line to start on Saturday, but that assignment will now go to Allen Webster who is being summoned from Triple-A.

Collmenter had some solid performances this season, but struggled in his last two starts when he gave up eight earned runs in just 11 2/3 innings. 

Hale did not elaborate on how permanent or temporary this move will be. 


Diamondbacks concerned with Josh Collmenter's velocity


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said the team has noticed a small decline in pitcher Josh Collmenter's fastball, which they are concerned about, reports MLB Network Radio.

Collmenter typically tops out at around 87-88 mph with his fastball, but it has been hovering around 84-85 mph recently. Collmenter has lost his last three decisions and his last win came on May 6.


Josh Collmenter loses third straight for Diamondbacks


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Diamondbacks starter Josh Collmenter lost his third straight decision, Sunday against the Mets. 

"You never want to give up runs, especially early in the game," Collmenter said, per MLB.com. "If you give up runs before these guys even have a chance to hit, it puts them behind the eight ball, so you want to try to go out there and put up zeroes early."

Collmenter gave up five runs on nine hits over six innings, dropping to 3-6 on the year. He walked one, struck out one, and gave up four home runs. 

"Not very good obviously. Any time you're giving up balls out of the park you're not doing a very good job," Collmenter said. "I haven't been doing a good job of controlling counts and getting ahead and making them hit my pitch."

Collmenter's next start is Saturday, against San Francisco.


Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter allows three runs in Tuesday's win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter surrendered three runs on six hits during Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Braves, but he received a no-decision.

"It's still not what you could be," he said, per the AZCentral.com. "I left a lot of pitches out there, or innings out there, so I've got to get better at that."

Collmenter struck out three and did not walk a batter during his 5 2/3 innings of work. It was the fourth time this season Collmenter did not give up a walk and his ERA now stands at 5.03.

Collmenter has failed to pitch past the sixth inning in his last five starts and he has not received a quality start over that time.

"He's gotta get outs," manager Chip Hale said. "So the way he pitches, if it takes him 100 pitches to get five, six innings, that's what we get. But he's already shown us he can throw a complete-game in San Francisco. So I think he's getting back to the point where maybe he can get deeper in games."

His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday against the Mets.


D-Backs P Josh Collmenter gives up 2 runs in no-decision


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter allowed two earned runs in a no-decision effort during Wednesday night's 4-3 loss to the Cardinals. 

Collmenter went five innings and struck out three batters. He gave up six hits and two walks. This is the second game in a row that Collmenter was only able to go five innings. He now has an ERA of 5.05. 

Collmenter's next start is projected for June 2 against the Braves. 


Diamondbacks' Collmenter allows two earned runs against Cubs


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter allowed two earned runs during Friday night's extra-inning game against the Cubs.

Collmenter struck out four batters and walked one during the five innings of work he put in. He gave up six hits, which matched the total he allowed in his previous start on May 17. Collmenter's performance Friday night was his best since an April 29 outing against the Rockies, when he went through eight innings without allowing a run. After Friday's game against the Cubs, he now has an ERA of 5.19.

After giving up 18 earned runs in his previous three games, Collmenter's game against the Cubs was a nice turnaround for the 29-year-old right-hander.

Collmenter's next start is scheduled for May 27 against the Cardinals.


Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter allows four runs in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter allowed four runs on six hits in six innings of work in Arizona's 6-0 loss to the Phillies on Sunday. 

Down 2-0 in the sixth, Collmenter was trying to get out of a jam, but allowed an RBI triple to rookie Maikel Franco. 

"We were battling and putting runners on and couldn't get anything across," Collmenter said to AZCentral.com. "To give them two extra runs kind of deflates everything we were trying to do up to that point."

Collmenter, now 3-5, moved his ERA to 5.36 in 47 innings of work. He will look to bounce back Friday against the Cubs.

"I thought he kept us in the game," D-backs manager Chip Hale said to MLB.com. "Early it looked like he didn't have his control, the ball wasn't moving like he wanted it to. I thought later on he started to really get it going. He had a low pitch count, which is typical of him. He was fine."


Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter gives up nine runs Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter had his worst outing of the season when surrendered nine runs on eight hits during Monday's 11-1 loss to the Nationals.

"Fastball command is the beginning and ending of everything that I do well and tonight it was up in the zone and flat," Collmenter said after the game, per the Arizona Republic. "When it's like that, it's pretty easy to hit, as evidenced tonight."

Collmenter's struggles began immediately in the first inning when he surrendered four runs on three hits including a solo home run to Denard Span to leadoff the game. He then gave up a three-run home run to Ryan Zimmerman in the first.

Collmenter (3-4) also struggled in the second inning with five runs on five more hits. He only recorded one out in the inning before being pulled. Collmenter saw his ERA raise from 3.40 to 5.27. After allowing 10 runs in his first five starts, Collmenter has now surrendered 14 runs in his last two starts.

"I could be rushing my mechanics or something, not getting on top of the ball," he said. "It could be a variety of things. I'm not sure. I'll look at some tape and try to make a few adjustments going into the next start."

His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday at Philadelphia.


Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter collects win No. 3 vs. Rockies


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter was not at his best but still came way with his third win of the season in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Rockies on Wednesday.

"I moved my fastball around pretty good," Collmenter said, per MLB.com. "Offspeed pitches were all pretty bad, and that's what I gave up a lot of the damage on. I just have to be better with those."

Collmenter (3-3) served up home runs to Justin Morneau, Nick Hundley and Drew Stubbs, which accounted for all of his damage on the afternoon. The right-hander was charged with five earned runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out five over seven innings of a 13-7 victory. Of his 102 pitches, 63 were strikes.

Collmenter is 3-1 with a 2.40 ERA over his last three starts. He will seek his fourth win of the season Monday at home against Washington.

Rockies-Diamondbacks postponed due to inclement weather


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Rain has postponed Monday night's game between the Rockies and the Diamondbacks, the Rockies announced. 

The Rockies and Diamondbacks were set to begin a three-game series Monday but now the two teams will have to figure out when they can make this game up.

Diamondbacks' Collmenter lasts eight innings in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter picked up a win Wednesday, giving up just one unearned run on five hits in eight innings while striking out six in his team's 9-1 victory over the Rockies.

Collmenter (2-3) delivered one of his best starts of the season Wednesday, giving up an RBI single in the first inning that didn't cost him an earned run then shutting the Rockies down over the remainder of his start. He wound up throwing 102 pitches in his eight innings of work.

"My fastball command was good today, moving in and out" Collmenter said, per MLB.com. "I was able to mix in the curveball and the changeup and felt good with both of those. Had a lot of confidence in them and was able to move the ball around, and this is a really aggressive team, so pitching ahead in the count is huge."

Collmenter owns a 2.76 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 16:3 K:BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rockies again Tuesday, this time in Colorado.

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.

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 Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter in contention to start opening day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.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.

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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.
