RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Collmenter opened the season as a member of the D-Backs' rotation, but a four-start shelling in April (9.82 ERA, .965 OPS allowed) led to a quick move to the bullpen and long relief duty. Around his time in the bullpen, Collmenter made a handful of successful starts, but his unorthodox delivery seems to play better in two or three-inning outings when hitters only get an at-bat or two against him, as his ERA out of the bullpen (1.32) was nearly four runs lower than his mark over 11 starts (5.11). Further, Collmenter's lack of a steady third offering (he uses a curveball sparingly) forces heavy reliance on his 86-89 mph fastball, a pitch that opposing hitters slugged .533 against in 2012. With the depth of young pitching talent on the D-Backs' organizational depth chart, long relief seems to be his role for the foreseeable future.

2012

Thanks to a revolving door in the back of the Arizona rotation, Collmenter was given a shot to start for the D-Backs in May after getting a call to work out of the bullpen in April. Boasting an unorthodox over-the-top delivery attributed to time spent throwing tomahawks as a child, Collmenter's less than impressive arsenal seems to work against big league hitters because of deception. Long term, he'll probably get squeezed out of the rotation when the D-Backs' prospects are ready to assume rotation spots, but Collmenter's low walk rate should make him a viable option in long relief once that happens. If Collmenter opens 2012 with a starting assignment, tread carefully here as he's very dependent on two pitches and will be prone to big innings as teams get a second and third look at him in the middle innings.

2011

There's a very large gap between the upper-level arms in the D-Backs' system and the wave of young pitchers with higher ceilings at the lower levels. Collmenter is intriguing, because his success depends much more on a deceptive over-the-top delivery than pure stuff. He pitched at three levels last season before an impressive stint in the Arizona Fall League. As his tumbling strikeout rate at Triple-A Reno (6.1 K/9IP) suggests, Collmenter's skill set may be best utilized in the bullpen at the big league level, making him more valuable to the D-Backs than to rotisserie players given the low likelihood of a high-leverage opportunity.
