Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Friday that Josh Collmenter would start on Opening Day.
Stewart announced that Rubby De La Rosa, Jeremy Hellickson and Allen Webster would follow Collmenter in the rotation, with an open competition being held in spring training for the fifth and final spot in the rotation. There's still plenty of time for things to change before the start of the regular season, but as it stands the rotation looks very weak heading into the 2015 season. Dec 12 - 11:15 PM

He's only four earned runs and 14 hits across 35 2/3 innings in his last five starts, good for a 1.01 ERA.

Sep 11 - 1:41 AM

Josh Collmenter fired seven innings of one-run ball to beat the Padres on Wednesday.

The right-hander wasn't blowing anybody away -- striking out three and walking two -- but he induced weak contact to the tune of four singles and a double. Though we preface this by saying that two of the starts came against the Padres -- who have hit much better during their recent surge -- Collmenter is dealing right now, allowing only one earned run in his last three starts across 21 2/3 frames (0.42 ERA). The hot streak leaves him 10-7 with a 3.81 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and a 103/36 K/BB ratio. Collmenter looks to keep the good times rolling when he travels to San Francisco on Tuesday.

The right-hander gave up only two hits without walking a batter while striking out five. Collmenter has pitched well over his last two starts and now sports a 3.94 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 100/34 K/BB ratio. He'll take on the Padres in San Diego on Wednesday next.
Aug 30 - 12:42 AM

Josh Collmenter fired 8 1/3 innings of one-run ball (none earned), striking out eight, to baffle the Padres in a 5-1 win on Friday.

He let only four runners grace the base paths, and they all came via singles. Two of them occurred in the ninth inning, with Alexi Amarista crossing home on a Miguel Montero passed ball after Collmenter was lifted for Matt Stites. This performance came out of left field, as it was the first time Collmenter has cracked six innings worked, allowed less than three earned runs, or earned a win in over a month. Collmenter is nothing special, but he's been an appreciated back-end starter in NL-only formats, going 9-7 with a 4.05 ERA and 1.25 WHIP.
Aug 23 - 12:10 AM

Tuesday's game between the Diamondbacks and Indians has been postponed due to rain.

Play was suspended in the top of the fourth inning before eventually being called a while later. Scheduled starters Josh Collmenter and T.J.

Aug 12 - 11:43 PM

Josh Collmenter surrendered three runs on three hits over six innings Wednesday in a loss to the Royals.

Collmenter started out the season well, but he put up a mediocre 4.60 ERA in June and an ugly 5.14 ERA in July. Making his second start of August, he travels to Cleveland next week.
Aug 7 - 12:47 AM

Aug 1 - 1:03 AM

Josh Collmenter stifled the Cubs en route to a win on Sunday, allowing only one run over seven frames.

Collmenter outdueled Jake Arrieta, holding the Cubs to four hits and a walk while striking out four. Not much has gone right for Arizona this season, but Collmenter certainly has. He has allowed one run or fewer in three out of his last four starts and now owns a 3.64 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 69/29 K/BB ratio. The right-hander will try to keep it going when he takes on the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park over the weekend.
Jul 20 - 7:13 PM

Josh Collmenter limited the Marlins to one run over seven innings Wednesday in a Diamondbacks victory.

Collmenter was left with a no-decision because the Arizona offense didn't break through until extra innings.

The right-hander will carry a solid 3.80 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into his next scheduled outing at home against the Cubs.
Jul 9 - 6:50 PM

Josh Collmenter was tagged for five runs over six-plus innings in Friday's loss to the Braves.

Jul 4 - 11:50 PM

Josh Collmenter limited the Padres to one run and five hits in 5 1/3 innings in a victory on Saturday.

We're not sure one run in 5 1/3 innings against the Padres even qualifies as a good outing these days, but it did serve to lower Collmenter's ERA from 3.87 to 3.74. He's picked up a win in three straight appearances, including a surprise relief outing in extra innings against the Indians on Tuesday.
