For the first time since 2012, Josh Collmenter is back in Arizona’s starting rotation. Collmenter, who has flourished as the long man in the Diamondbacks bullpen, will start Monday night at home against the Mets. The 28-year-old has a 2.25 ERA in four relief appearances this year, including a scoreless four-inning effort last week when he picked up his first career save.
