Diamondbacks Roster Review: Josh Collmenter

By Scott Allen

As we head into the second half of the season, it is time to take a look at the current roster before all the possible trades and roster moves are made as the Arizona Diamondbacks continue to contend for a possible NL West divisional title.  Next Up – Josh Collmenter.

Collmenter is 4-5, 3.17 ERA

Review: Collmenter’s last 4 starts have proven hitters are starting to catch on to him.  His ERA was 1.12 after beating the Pittsburgh Pirates on June 9th.  Since then, Collmenter’s ERA has shot up by over 2 runs per game.  He is trending in the wrong direction.

Outlook:  Bleak if he continues on the path he has been over the past 3 weeks.  At the very least he could be headed back to the bullpen.  Nothing has been made official, so I imagine he gets at least one more start before that kind of decision is made.  The next week will be critical in his development.
