Arizona Diamondbacks OF Peter O'Brien and RPs Silvino Bracho and Dominic Leone were recalled from Class AAA Friday, May 27. RP Josh Collmenter (shoulder) was also reinstated from the 15-day disabled list. SPs Shelby Miller (finger) and Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) were placed on the disabled list in corresponding moves.
Fantasy Tip: O'Brien is a big-time power prospect who has transitioned from catcher to the outfield. He hit 26 homers in the minors in 2015 and is a waiver wire target for home runs in the short term in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. His stay could be short, though, with David Peralta returning from the DL soon. Bracho has potential to be a successful late-inning reliever, but he's a watch list guy for now. Collmenter is likely to serve in a long-relief role despite the D-backs having a need for starters at the moment. He can be ignored in fantasy.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter (shoulder) will start Tuesday, May 17, for Class AAA Reno. Manager Chip Hale said the right-hander needs to show some positive results during rehab.
Fantasy Tip: Well, thus far, Collmenter has shown anything but positive signs, as he's put together a disastrous 10.57 ERA and 2.22 WHIP in his three rehab starts. And Hale's strategy with the former opening day starter should also apply to fantasy owners: Don't even think about picking him up until he shows some life in the majors again, which still might take awhile.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter (shoulder) threw one inning in an extended spring training game Monday, April 25, and he worked another inning in the bullpen. He will work in an extended spring game Thursday, April 28 before he heads out to Class A Visalia for a minor-league rehab assignment.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain in what capacity Collmenter will work when he returns to the big club. Avoid him in fantasy leagues until his situation becomes more certain.

Arizona Diamondbacks P Josh Collmenter (shoulder) is expected to begin pitching in extended spring training games soon before heading out on a rehab assignment. He has been sidelined all season due to inflammation in his right shoulder and could return to action early next month, according to manager Chip Hale.
Fantasy Tip: Collmenter has little fantasy value outside of NL-only fantasy leagues because he is expected to be used in a relief role once he returns. The 30-year-old went 4-6 with a 3.79 ERA in 44 games last season, including 32 appearances out of the bullpen.

The Arizona Diamondbacks might use SP Josh Collmenter for the start Thursday, July 23, against the Milwaukee Brewers with SP Chase Anderson (triceps) ailing.
Fantasy Tip: Collmenter ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) lost his rotation spot earlier in the season, but has worked in emergency situations before. He could be a sneaky low-end FantasyScore option in a home start against a poor opponent.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter is expected to make a spot start Saturday, July 4, against the Colorado Rockies following the demotion of SP Allen Webster to the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Collmenter was recently bumped to the bullpen from the rotation, and with Patrick Corbin returning from injury it sounds like a one-time deal for Collmenter. Still, if he shows well in this outing he could be next in line if a spot opens up.
