Mike Puma of the New York Post reports at least three teams are "still interested" in Asdrubal Cabrera.

The wording would imply that more teams were interested but a few dropped out of the running. Either way, there's a strong likelihood Cabrera will have a new home by July 31, or at least a new old home. Cleveland, the team he began his career with in 2007, has been linked to Cabrera for quite some time and is probably the favorite to acquire him. Cabrera, who has played all over the diamond in recent weeks, will probably serve in a utility role if he lands with the Tribe.

Nationals signed RHP Neli Ramirez to a minor league contract.

Cheslor Cuthbert (wrist) and Paulo Orlando (shin) both suffered setbacks during their rehab assignments.

Cuthbert had been rehabbing at Triple-A Omaha while Orlando was doing his rehab with Double-A Arkansas. Few specifics have been offered on their setbacks, though it's safe to assume neither will be joining the Royals any time soon.

According to Newsday's Marc Carig, Amed Rosario is likely to be promoted before Dominic Smith.

Part of the reason the Mets traded Duda, besides that he was at the end of his contract, was that New York wanted to pave the way for Dominic Smith at first base. Smith will eventually see his day in the major leagues but the Mets aren't going to rush things. Rosario is also due for a promotion and should beat Smith to the big leagues, though he won't have that opportunity until at least after the trade deadline. Ranked No. 2 on MLB.com's Top 100 prospects, the 21-year-old Rosario has hit a robust .334 with seven homers, 57 RBI and 17 steals at Triple-A Las Vegas this season.

According to USA Today's Bob Klapisch, the Yankees are "leading the pack" in trade talks with Sonny Gray.

That's been the case for a few days now, though no deal is imminent and Klapisch is hearing the sides are "a long way" from the finish line. Gray is under team control through 2019, which is obviously very appealing to the Yankees with CC Sabathia and possibly Masahiro Tanaka (he has an opt-out) coming off the books this winter. The Yankees also covet Yonder Alonso, which could make a deal more complicated as Oakland's asking price will obviously be much higher with Alonso involved. Whether it's the Yankees or another team, Gray will almost certainly be wearing a new uniform by July 31.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Cubs have "at least considered" making a run at Francisco Liriano.

Liriano's trade market is heating up. The Cubs are known to be targeting Yu Darvish and Justin Verlander but Liriano could be their fallback option if those plans fall through. Aside from the Cubs, Liriano has also drawn interest from the Astros, Dodgers, Royals and Twins. Of the teams just mentioned, Kansas City has pursued Liriano the most aggressively.

Robert Gsellman (hamstring) allowed three hits, one walk and one run over 2/3 of an inning Thursday in a rehab start for Double-A Binghamton.

It was not a good outing for Gsellman, who was lifted after throwing just 26 pitches. Obviously he'll need at least a couple more appearances before he's ready to rejoin the Mets' rotation. A hamstring strain has sidelined the right-hander since late June.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Rangers remain undecided on whether to trade Yu Darvish.

This would explain why Texas hasn't pulled the trigger yet despite widespread interest in the right-hander. Clearly the Rangers are torn on whether they should start trading away parts or stand pat and try to compete for a Wild Card spot. Holding onto Darvish would be risky as his contract is up at the end of the year and there's no guarantee the Rangers would be able to re-sign him. The Rangers could cover themselves by extending Darvish a qualifying offer, which would entitle them to draft pick compensation if he signs elsewhere. The Cubs and Dodgers will be among Darvish's top suitors if the Rangers decide to trade him.
