Derek Dietrich went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in a win over the Reds on Thursday.

Dietrich was the man on the spot in this one, hitting a solo homer in the fourth inning to open the scoring before a bases-loaded walk plated a run in the fifth and an RBI single in the seventh brought in another run. The homer was Dietrich's fifth of the year. The good night came on the heels of a five-RBI game the night before. Good games have been scarce for the 28-year-old, who's hitting just .237/.312/.376 on the year.

Robert Stephenson walked seven while allowing three runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Thursday.

Stephenson didn't get punished for his mistakes, with the Marlins pushing across just three runs, but the wildness served to abbreviate the right-hander's night at the very least. He's now been relatively ineffective in both starts since being recalled earlier this month. Stephenson owns a 7.86 ERA in 34 1/3 innings this year heading into Wednesday's start against the Pirates.

Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Reds.

Gordon wasn't afraid to run on this night, walking to lead off the first inning before getting caught stealing. Undeterred, Gordon then singled to lead off the third inning and stole his 37th base before being stranded at second. He tried a third time to run in the sixth inning but was again nailed by Red catcher Tucker Barnhart. The 29-year-old's 37 swipes are second-most in the National League behind Billy Hamilton's, and he's also on a bit of a tear at the plate of late, with four multi-hit games during a seven-game hitting streak. The good stretch has his line up to .294/.338/.358 overall.

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. The Indians, the team he began his career with in 2007, have been linked to Cabrera for quite some time. Cabrera, who has played all over the diamond in recent weeks, would probably fill a utility role if he lands in Cleveland.

Nationals signed RHP Neli Ramirez to a minor league contract.

Ramirez has jumped around this year, spending time with four organizations. He's underwhelmed at the big league level, producing a sluggish 7.18 ERA over 29 appearances this year. The right-hander will report to Triple-A Syracuse.

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.
