    A gem from Josh Collmenter, an ugly dud from the Braves and a horrible, horrible bit of stream of consciousness from me about what would happen if the season ended today.

    Sure, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks are heading to Australia next week for a two-game series, but more importantly Arizona right-hander Josh Collmenter is hoping to get a date while he’s there. Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports writes that Collmenter has agreed to a dating game-style contest sponsored by the Daily Telegraph in Sydney. Women have…

    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…

    It wasn’t too long ago that Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was on the brink of being fired, but now his team is the first in MLB to clinch a division title this season. What a wild ride. The Dodgers defeated the Diamondbacks 7-6 this afternoon at Chase Field to wrap up the National League West.…

  8. Carlos Gonzalez may be placed on the disabled list with finger injury

    Aug 4, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez had been out of the lineup for the first three games of August due to a nagging finger injury, but was back in today as his team wrapped up their weekend set in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. He went 1-for-4 with a single, but reaggravated the injury in his final at-bat,…

    Carlos Gonzalez

    It has been a hellish week for the Rockies, losers of seven of their last eight games.

    Josh Collmenter Getty

    In the bottom of the eighth inning with the Marlins leading 2-0, Diamondbacks reliever Josh Collmenter was trying to keep the deficit at two as he faced the top of the lineup. Adeiny Hechavarria decided to attempt to bunt the first pitch he saw, but popped it up. Catcher Miguel Montero and Collmenter converged on…

  11. Diamondbacks top Cardinals in 16-inning marathon

    Apr 4, 2013, 3:27 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Arizona Diamondbacks

    No one told Josh Collmenter and Mitchell Boggs that it’s too early in the season for games to be lasting past 3 a.m. It took nearly 5 1/2 hours, but the Diamondbacks edged the Cardinals 10-9 in 16 innings Wednesday to claim two out of three in the opening series in Arizona. Cliff Pennington singled…

  12. Diamondbacks shut down 21-year-old rookie Tyler Skaggs

    Sep 25, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Tyler Skaggs

    Tyler Skaggs made his big-league debut for the Diamondbacks on August 22, but in the six starts since then the former first-round pick hasn’t looked like the guy who ranks among the elite pitching prospects in baseball. He allowed 20 runs in 29 innings and showed decreased velocity, averaging just 89.4 miles per hour with…

    Aug 11, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Josh Collmenter Getty

    The Diamondbacks placed right-hander Josh Collmenter on the disabled list before last night’s game due to ulcers. No further information was provided by the team, but Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson told Tyler Emrick of MLB.com that he got ill after the team returned from their 10-game roadtrip on Thursday. “It cropped up last night,” Gibson…

    Aug 1, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

    Patrick Corbin

    The Dodgers remade their lineup Wednesday to fit in new arrival Shane Victorino, but it led to just two hits — one off the bat of starter Stephen Fife — as the Diamondbacks won 4-0 to complete a three-game sweep in Los Angeles. Manager Don Mattingly, too often limited to one or two quality hitters…

  15. Diamondbacks send Trevor Bauer back to Triple-A

    Jul 18, 2012, 5:24 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer Getty

    When the Diamondbacks called up Trevor Bauer for his debut in late June there was plenty of opportunity for him to stick in the majors for good, but instead four starts later the 21-year-old top prospect is heading back to the minors. Bauer showed the raw stuff that has the potential to make him an…

  16. Trevor Bauer to make major league debut Thursday

    Jun 24, 2012, 5:38 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    Rather than give Josh Collmenter another spot start, the Diamondbacks will promote top prospect Trevor Bauer in time to start Thursday’s game against the Braves, Jack Magruder of FOXSportsArizona.com reports. Bauer was removed from his start Sunday after 50 pitches, suggesting that the Diamondbacks were looking at it as a tuneup for Thursday’s outing. The…

    Jun 23, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Miami Marlins

    Is Trevor Bauer time upon us? Maybe. According to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, Joe Saunders was scratched from his scheduled start last night against the Cubs because he had trouble getting loose. Josh Collmenter got the call at the last minute and allowed one run over four innings. Brad Ziegler, Craig Breslow, Bryan Shaw and…

  18. D’Backs turn to left-hander Patrick Corbin for Monday start

    Apr 28, 2012, 7:48 PM EDT

    corbin ap

    Many assumed that a well-known prospect like Trevor Bauer or Tyler Skaggs would be promoted when the Diamondbacks finally removed soft-tossing righty Josh Collmenter from their starting rotation. Well, Collmenter was pushed to the bullpen on Saturday. But Bauer and Skaggs will stay put. According to CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler, the D’Backs have announced that…

  19. The Diamondbacks appear ready to move Josh Collmenter to the bullpen

    Apr 27, 2012, 9:30 PM EDT

    Josh Collmenter Getty

    Josh Collmenter‘s grip on a rotation spot has been pretty tenuous since he struggled during spring training and it appears the Diamondbacks are already close to pulling the plug. According to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said tonight that he is considering other options in place of Collmenter for Monday’s game against…

  20. Josh Collmenter might be pitching for his job next time out

    Apr 16, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Josh Collmenter

    Josh Collmenter struggled this spring and has coughed up 11 runs in seven innings through two starts, leading to speculation that he might not be long for the Diamondbacks’ rotation despite a very solid rookie season that saw him throw 154 innings with a 3.38 ERA. Kirk Gibson confirmed to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com that…

  21. Josh Collmenter isn’t long for the Diamondbacks rotation

    Apr 8, 2012, 6:44 PM EDT

    Josh Collmenter

    Forget that Josh Collmenter had a 3.59 ERA in his 24 starts as a rookie last season. If many Diamondbacks fans had their way, he would have been demoted to the pen before 2012 even opened. Those calls will only get louder now. Collmenter followed up a Cactus League season in which he went 0-4…

  22. Josh Collmenter to open season in Diamondbacks’ starting rotation

    Mar 17, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Josh Collmenter Getty

    2011 first-round pick Trevor Bauer has stolen the show in Diamondbacks’ camp, posting a 2.57 ERA and 7/1 K/BB ratio over seven innings during Cactus League action. We’ve heard multiple reports recently that the 21-year-old right-hander was being seriously considered for a spot in the starting rotation, but it appears his major league debut will…

  23. Running down the rosters: Arizona Diamondbacks

    Feb 16, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    Gerardo Parra, Chris Young, Justin Upton

    Give the Diamondbacks credit; even though all of the team’s key players were already under control for 2012, they didn’t stand pat after winning the NL West crown last season. In writing the team’s postmortem last October, I stated that adding a No. 3 starter had to be the priority. That’s what the team did…

    Jan 13, 2012, 2:35 PM EDT

    Bartolo Colon

    Bartolo Colon hasn’t been linked to many teams as a free agent, but Jayson Stark of ESPN.com reports that the Diamondbacks are “showing interest” in him as a potential fifth starter. After a year out of the big leagues Colon signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees last offseason and made a remarkable comeback, throwing…

    Dec 19, 2011, 1:46 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda

    Two weeks ago the Diamondbacks reportedly made Hiroki Kuroda a contract offer, but general manager Kevin Towers revealed today that they couldn’t get the free agent right-hander to give them an answer. Arizona signed Jason Kubel instead, paying $15 million over two years for a left fielder who isn’t even a clear upgrade over incumbent…
