Josh Collmenter surrendered a mere unearned run across eight dominant innings in Wednesday's 9-1 triumph over the Rockies.
He struck out six, declined to issue a free pass and surrendered five hits. Collmenter went 0-2 with a 6.52 ERA in his first two starts, but has yielded only three earned runs over 23 innings in winning two of three outings since. This is the first time all season he'd whiffed more than five batters -- mitigating his fantasy value -- though we're encouraged on behalf of NL-only owners that he's walked only three batters all year.

Josh Collmenter pitched his second career shutout and went 3-for-5 with an RBI at the plate Friday against the Giants.

He ended up with almost as many hits as the four he allowed on the night. He struck out just two, but allowing the Giants to put the ball in play hasn't hurt many pitchers of late (Collmenter being one exception, having given up five runs in a loss to the Giants on Opening Day). Collmenter's previous shutout came last May 29 against the Reds. Unless the Diamondbacks decide to rearrange their rotation and pitch him Wednesday against the Rangers, he's due to face the Pirates next time out.
Apr 18 - 1:44 AM

Josh Collmenter allowed nine hits and three earned runs over five innings against the Dodgers on Sunday.

This marks two straight starts in which Collmenter has failed to make it past the fifth inning. He was pulled despite throwing just 74 pitches. The Dodgers slashed him for solitary runs in the third, fourth and fifth, with Yasiel Puig capping off the scoring on Collmenter's line with a solo home run. While he's struggled early this season, Collmenter has never posted an ERA higher than 3.69. He'll try to move the numbers in that direction when he takes on the defending champion Giants in his next start.

Josh Collmenter couldn't make it out of the fifth inning in an Opening Day loss to the Giants.

Collmenter had been matching Madison Bumgarner through four innings, but the Giants led off the fifth with two singles and a double, ultimately plating four runs. Collmenter was taken out with two outs in the inning. All told, he yielded 10 hits and a walk while striking out four. He'll look to rebound in his next start at home against the Dodgers.
Apr 7 - 1:33 AM

Josh Collmenter delivered an outstanding performance in Friday's Cactus League victory over the Indians scattering three hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings.

The Diamondbacks' Opening Day starter struck out three on the impressive afternoon. He has yet to be scored upon in 13 innings of work on the spring while registering a 6/2 K/BB ratio. Though he isn't going to compile many strikeouts, the 29-year-old hurler owns a career 3.42 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 516 career innings and makes for a solid backend starter in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
Mar 27 - 7:00 PM

Josh Collmenter was terrific in Tuesday's victory over the Giants, scattering two hits over four scoreless innings.

Collmenter didn't walk a batter and racked up four strikeouts on the afternoon. He's already been tabbed as the D'Backs starter on Opening Day, and has backed up his manager's confidence thus far with six scoreless innings this spring.
Mar 17 - 10:53 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale on Sunday named Josh Collmenter the team's Opening Day starter.

The unorthodox righty with the high-80s fastball isn't your typical Opening Day starter. However, you can't argue with his results the last four years (3.42 ERA, 1.15 WHIP), especially when you consider half his games were in a hitter friendly ballpark. Jeremy Hellickson is the only other D'Back with a rotation spot locked up, but Chase Anderson is written down in ink and Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster are the favorites for the final two slots.
Mar 8 - 3:15 PM

Josh Collmenter threw two scoreless innings in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Mariners.

Collmenter needed just 18 pitches to get through his two innings of work, allowing only one hit while not walking or striking out a batter. The right-hander is one of the few givens in the Diamondbacks' rotation heading into the season, and he's already been dubbed the team's Opening Day starter. Collmenter had a 3.46 ERA in 179 1/3 innings last season in the desert and should put up similarly good numbers again this year.
Mar 7 - 6:04 PM

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.

Josh Collmenter went eight strong innings, allowing one run in a tough-luck loss to the Cardinals.

Collmenter gave up just three hits but didn't receive any backing from his offense. The loss dropped him to 11-9 with a 3.46 ERA and 1.13 WHIP to end the year. Collmenter showed he could hang as a starter, and he should be get a shot to break camp in the rotation next spring.

Josh Collmenter improved to 11-8 by holding the Twins to two runs in 6 1/3 innings on Monday.

One would think Collmenter might wear down under this much heavier-than-expected workload, but he's been better than ever of late, turning in six straight quality starts. During that stretch, he's allowed just one homer in 42 innings. Beforehand, he had given up 17 in 129 1/3 innings, which is much closer in line with his track record.
Mon, Sep 22, 2014 11:58:00 PM

Josh Collmenter painted eight innings of two-run ball but took the loss in Tuesday's 2-1 setback against the Giants.

Collmenter pitched beautifully, but unfortunately he had to lock horns with a dealing Jake Peavy. The right-hander only struck out one, but he didn't walk a batter. 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. Collmenter (10-8, 3.60 ERA) has a nice matchup on deck with a date versus the Twins in Minnesota.
Wed, Sep 17, 2014 12:23:00 AM

Josh Collmenter painted six shutout innings in Wednesday's no-decision against the Giants.

Collmenter scattered three hits and struck out three in remaining stuck one win shy of a new career high. He's 2-0 in his last four starts, having held opposing offenses to two earned runs and 14 hits across 27 2/3 innings. The right-hander attributes his recent success locating the ball intelligently and mixing up his pitches. Collmenter (10-7, 3.67 ERA) has a rematch against San Francisco on Tuesday.
Thu, Sep 11, 2014 01:41:00 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.

Josh Collmenter yielded only one run over 6 1/3 innings but was handed a no-decision as the D'Backs came back late and defeated the Rockies 5-2 on Friday.

Collmenter and Bergman were locked in a pitcher's duel -- or, more accurately, an offensive ceasefire -- for much of the evening. 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.
