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. He gave up seven Miami hits, but walked only one and struck out six in the impressive start. 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.

Collmenter gave up four runs over the first two innings, so he was fortunate to make it all the way to the seventh inning. He allowed a season-high 11 hits in the loss while striking out three and walking one. His ERA now sits at 3.98 for the year. He'll get the Marlins next week.
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.
Jun 29 - 1:43 AM

Josh Collmenter pitched five innings of one-run ball Friday in a victory over the Giants.

Collmenter walked a season-high four, but it didn't do any damage, except for perhaps forcing him from the game an inning early. The lone run scored when Buster Posey singled and Pablo Sandoval tripled in the first. It was Collmenter's first win since his first career shutout back on May 29 against the Reds.
Jun 21 - 12:50 AM

Josh Collmenter was tagged for six runs in six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

As everyone predicted, it was a two-run homer from Dee Gordon and a three-run double from Dan Haren that did him in. Since pitching a shutout against the Reds on May 29, Collmenter has given up 13 earned runs over 18 innings in his last three starts. Ideally, he'll return to a middle relief role at some point.
Jun 15 - 12:55 AM

Josh Collmenter coughed up four runs -- three earned -- over seven innings as the Diamondbacks lost 4-3 to the Astros on Monday.

Collmenter surrendered seven hits, walked one, and whiffed five. This type of outing is typically sufficient to earn a victory over the Astros, but not against a team that is 12-4 since May 24. After falling to 4-3 with a 3.65 ERA and 1.16 WHIP, Collmenter gets the Dodgers on Sunday.
Jun 10 - 12:55 AM

Josh Collmenter scattered three hits in a complete game win over the Reds on Thursday in which he faced the minimum 27 batters.

He struck out five and didn't walk a batter. Collmenter faced the minimum 27 batters after inducing three double plays to erase the trio of hits he gave up. Since 1914, there's been only 13 pitchers who have faced the minimum 27 batters while allowing at least three hits, with Collmenter the latest on the list. Roy Oswalt last pulled off the feat in 2008. Tonight's effort marked Collmenter's first career complete game and shutout. He needed only 94 pitches to pull off the trick, coaxing 13 ground balls from the Reds. Now 4-2 with a 3.34 ERA, Collmenter has a tough matchup coming up with a road date in Colorado next week.
May 30 - 12:34 AM

Josh Collmenter earned the win, allowing three runs over 5 1/3 innings as the Diamondbacks defeated the Dodgers 5-3 on Sunday.

Collmenter made a couple of mistakes, issuing home runs to Adrian Gonzalez and Hanley Ramirez. Other than that, he carved through the Dodgers' lineup, allowing only four hits in total with two walks and three strikeouts. Collmenter will take his 4.02 ERA in search of his third win next weekend against the Mets on the road.
May 18 - 7:22 PM

Josh Collmenter allowed four runs on four hits over five innings in a Monday no-decision against the Nationals.

It wasn't pretty, but Collmenter was actually in line for the win before Addison Reed punted the game away in the ninth. Collmenter's struggles came courtesy of the long ball, as he served up a second inning Tyler Moore solo homer and then a fourth inning two-run Ian Desmond bomb to left. Collmenter's 3.89 ERA and 1.22 WHIP look fine enough, but he's allowed less than three earned runs in only two of six starts and has gone beyond six frames once. Collmenter will find himself across from Clayton Kershaw in Saturday evening's date with the Dodgers.
May 13 - 12:49 AM

Josh Collmenter allowed five runs -- but just one earned -- on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Collmenter should have been out of the first inning with only one run scored, but a throwing error by Chris Owings allowed a run to score and kept the inning alive. A single and a double later and the right-hander was staring at a 5-2 deficit. He did well to keep the Brewers off the board over the next 4 2/3 innings, but the damage was already done. A late Diamondbacks rally kept Collmenter from taking his third loss. He'll go against the Nationals on Monday.
May 6 - 11:53 PM

Josh Collmenter allowed four runs on seven hits over seven innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Wednesday.

He struck out two and walked a pair. Collmenter would have been fine if he'd avoided the long ball, but that's no easy proposition against the Rockies. One homer -- Carlos Gonzalez's two-run first inning dinger -- wasn't upsetting, but Jordan Lyles' solo shot in the third stung. Collmenter didn't join the rotation until April 14, but he's arguably been Arizona's best starter so far (insert your own joke here). That doesn't mean you should use him at Milwaukee on Tuesday.
May 1 - 1:02 AM

Josh Collmenter notched his first win of the season with six innings of shutout ball against the Phillies on Friday.

It was a close thing; the Diamondbacks pen nearly gave up a four-run lead, with Joe Thatcher, Randall Delgado and Addison Reed struggling. For Collmenter, it was his first win as a starter since 2012. He'll likely prove more useful to the Diamondbacks in relief than he will as a starter, but tonight's performance should ensure that he stays in the rotation for a couple of more weeks. He has a little NL-only value.
Apr 26 - 2:13 AM

Josh Collmenter allowed four runs, all in the sixth innings, over six innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Collmenter threw five shutout innings before the four-run sixth marred the outing. It was two big hits in that inning -- a Carl Crawford triple and three-run homer by Yasiel Puig -- that did Collmenter in, and he finished with five hits and two walks allowed on the day. He should get better as he builds stamina. That process will continue Friday against the Phillies.
Apr 20 - 8:27 PM

In his first start since 2012, Josh Collmenter surrendered three runs on five hits over four innings of a loss on Monday against the Mets.

He whiffed three and walked one. Collmenter replaced Randall Delgado in the rotation, but he didn't fare much better than the struggling right-hander in this one. He threw only 73 pitches, but you can expect Kirk Gibson to ramp up his limit going forward. Collmenter gets the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Sunday.
