Braves' Josh Collmenter: Outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, Grant McAuley of 92.9 The Game reports.

Since reaching the majors in 2011, Collmenter has managed to finish each season with an ERA below 3.80. However, the current campaign has been a challenge for the 31-year-old righty, as he currently owns an ERA and WHIP of 9.00 and 2.06, respectively. He'll look to get back on track with Gwinnett and earn another shot in the big leagues.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter was designated for assignment by the Braves on Thursday.

Collmenter had been with the Braves since the start of the season, accumulating 17 innings across 11 appearances. Wednesday's horrific outing was the last straw, however, as the 31-year-old surrendered seven earned runs to bring his ERA up 9.00 on the year. The long ball has been especially troublesome, as Collmenter has allowed seven on the year, with three of them coming in Wednesday's outing.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Annihilated in 10th inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter (0-2) gave up seven runs on six hits and a walk in the 10th inning of Wednesday's loss to the Pirates.

After the Pirates went ahead against him, manager Brian Snitker left Collmenter in to take his lumps and save the rest of the bullpen, and he proceeded to give up three homers in his inning of work. With his 9.00 ERA and 2.06 WHIP in mostly low-leverage work out of Atlanta's bullpen, it's hard to imagine the sort of fantasy roster where Collmenter might find a home.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Available to pitch Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter will be available to pitch in Friday's game against the Phillies, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Collmenter pitched three shutout innings Wednesday against the Nationals, but he did give up five hits and a walk in that game. Collmenter is typically used in extended relief situations, but those looking for a source of strikeouts will want to look elsewhere. For his career, Collmenter has career K/9 of just 6.3.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Serves up two homers Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter gave up two runs on three hits over two innings while striking out one in Friday's loss to the Pirates.

The runs came on solo shots by David Freese and Francisco Cervelli, not exactly the heart of Pittsburgh's order. Homers are an ongoing issue for Collmenter, but the junkballing righty usually manages to limit the damage at season's end. He'll remain in a long-relief role for the Braves for the time being.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Strikes out five Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter got the start in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets and allowed one run on four hits while striking out five over five innings.

He's set for a long-relief role with the Braves this season, but Collmenter has still put together a strong spring, posting a 2.81 ERA and 10:1 K:BB in 16 innings. The team has younger arms like Matt Wisler and Aaron Blair available at Triple-A Gwinnett should a long-term vacancy open up in its rotation, but Collmenter could see the occasional spot start as Atlanta looks to keep veterans like R.A. Dickey and Bartolo Colon fresh during the season.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Looks good in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter threw two shutout innings in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, allowing two hits.

He came on in relief of Mike Foltynewicz, and long relief seems to be the job Collmenter is ticketed for this season after the Braves bolstered their rotation over the winter. The 31-year-old can barely break 85 mph with his fastball, but despite his lack of raw stuff he's never posted an ERA over 3.79, or a WHIP over 1.26, in six big league seasons, and he should be able to provide effective innings out of the Braves' bullpen in 2017.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Signs contract with Braves on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter agreed to a one-year deal with the Braves on Monday, avoiding arbitration, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

After joining the Braves toward the end of last season, Collmenter proved to be a solid starter for Atlanta, going 2-0 with a 2.37 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. The right-hander should be able to compete for a rotation spot if he can perform anywhere near this level during spring training.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Finishes impressive September with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter pitched seven innings, allowing one run on six hits and no walks while striking out four in Thursday's no-decision against Philadelphia.

Collmenter made three starts for the Braves since being acquired, all of which came in the second half of September. He went 2-0 with a 2.37 ERA and 16 strikeouts over 19 innings. It was quite an impressive set of outings considering he had not started a game since June 7, 2015.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Goes seven in victory over Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter (3-0) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks over seven innings in Thursday's road win against Miami.

He's won a pair of starts since coming over to the Braves earlier this month. Collmenter will get a chance to close out his unimpressive, injury-shortened 2016 campaign (4.19 ERA, 1.34 WHIP) on a high note against the Phillies next week.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Picks up five-inning win against Nationals on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter (2-0) struck out eight and gave up two earned runs on four hits and three walks over five innings in a 7-3 victory over the Nationals on Saturday.

The veteran was making his first start at the major league level in more than 15 months and acquitted himself well against a potent Nationals lineup. Collmenter missed plenty of bats, generating 13 swinging strikes over his 94 pitches. The one hitter he couldn't solve was Trea Turner, who touched up the 30-year-old for a pair of solo homers. Collmenter may be moved to the bullpen for the balance of the campaign, but Saturday's outing certainly provided reason for optimism should he get another turn in the rotation.

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Will start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter will start Saturday against the Nationals, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

As expected, Collmenter will step in Saturday for his first major league start in more than 15 months. Collmenter struggled out of the Arizona bullpen this year and was ultimately released, but he was sharp during a four-start run with the Cubs' Triple-A Iowa affiliate (2.25 ERA, 1.31 WHIP). He threw 91 pitches in his final start for Iowa back on Sept. 3.

September 16, 2016 06:18 PM
Braves' Josh Collmenter: Called up to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter was called up by the Braves on Friday.

According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, there's a "good chance" Collmenter starts Saturday against Washington, just three days after being acquired from the Cubs. Collmenter was the Diamondbacks' Opening Day starter in 2015 but pitched exclusively out of the bullpen this season and struggled before ultimately being released (4.84 ERA, 1.43 WHIP).

Braves' Josh Collmenter: Traded from Chicago to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs traded Collmenter to the Braves on Wednesday for cash considerations, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Collmenter, the Diamondbacks' Opening Day starter in 2015, pitched exclusively out of the bullpen with Arizona this season before being released in early August. He then signed on with the Cubs, posting a 2.25 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in four starts for their Triple-A Iowa affiliate. The Braves' rotation has been hit hard by injuries recently and it's possible Collmenter could start a few games before the end of the season.

Josh Collmenter: Released by Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter was unconditionally released by the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

The 30-year-old hurler struggled out of the bullpen for Arizona this season, posting a 4.84 ERA and 5.69 FIP over 22.1 innings. He is now free to sign elsewhere, but his days as a serviceable starter could be over.

Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

A shoulder injury forced Collmenter to the DL to start the year, and he's struggled to a 4.84 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 15 appearance since his return, with all of the runs scored against him coming in a trio of four-run blowups. This move may very well spell the end of Collmenter's seven-year tenure in the Diamondbacks' organization, as the 30-year-old could appeal to other clubs while on waivers, and if he's not claimed, he can opt for free agency.

Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter: Struggling to avoid big inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter has allowed four runs in 7.1 innings during July.

Collmenter has given up runs in just three of his 15 appearances this season, but those three were blowups, allowing four runs in each. The inconsistency has led to a 4.84 ERA and sporadic use by manager Chip Hale.

Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter: Pitches two scoreless innings Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter pitched two innings of scoreless ball in Tuesday's loss to the Astros, giving up a hit and two walks. He also hit a batter.

After a rough season debut on Friday (0.1 innings, four hits, two walks and four earned runs), Collmenter has pitched four scoreless innings over his last two outings. Collmenter missed nearly two months due to a shoulder injury, but he figures to be a key long reliever for the Diamondbacks moving forward as he gets more comfortable on the mound.

May 27, 2016 05:54 PM
Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter: Reinstated from DL Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter was reinstated from the disabled list Friday.

After placing both Shelby Miller (finger) and Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) on the DL, the Diamondbacks were in dire need of pitching help. Although Collmenter is likely not ready to pitch in long relief yet (he only threw 20 pitches in his last rehab appearance), he could move into a more expanded role once he builds up more strength in his shoulder.

Diamondbacks' Josh Collmenter: Nearing return to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collmenter (shoulder) will start for Triple-A Reno as part of his rehab assignment on Tuesday, and according to manager Chip Hale, could return to the majors by this weekend, Nick Piecoro of AZ Central Sports reports.

Collmenter struggled at the start of his rehab assignment at High-A Visalia, where he threw for a 10.57 ERA in 7.2 innings pitched. Since then, he's been doing better at the Triple-A level, pitching 6.1 innings for one earned run, three strikeouts, and four walks.
