Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Diamondbacks have signed reliever Josh Collmenter to a two-year contract extension, avoiding arbitration. The deal is worth $2.425 million and has one club option and one mutual option. If both are exercised, the deal could be worth $6.5 million. If neither option is exercised, Collmenter will still be eligible for his third and final year of arbitration going into 2016.
Collmenter, who turns 28 on February 7, started his big league career in 2011 serving mostly as a starter for the Diamondbacks, but was eventually moved to the bullpen in 2012. Last season, he was used exclusively out of the bullpen, finishing with a 3.13 ERA in 92 innings of work. 31 of his 49 appearances lasted longer than one inning.
