Stephenson gave up two homers to J.T. Realmuto in Saturday’s 5-4 loss, his first start of 2017, but he left the Reds with some optimism. He had better command with one unintentional walk over 5 1/3 innings, and he showed an improved slider.

O'Grady had some command issues in his last start, but he attributed it to the humidity in Cincinnati. He walked four over the first two innings, but he found the strike zone far more often after applying some rosin to his arms to stop the sweat.
