2013 Home Run Derby: Robinson Cano eliminated with four homers in first round

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was eliminated in the first round of the 2013 Home Run Derby after hitting only four home runs. That's four more than he managed to hit last year in Kansas City, but was not enough to advance to the next round as one of the Top 4 hitters. Cano's total of four was the lowest in the first round.

The leading hitter heading into the second round was Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, who blew away the field with 17 home runs. Also advancing to the next round were Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, and Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer. Both captains, Cano and David Wright, failed to make it out of the first round. Davis and Harper hit eight each in Round One and Cuddyer hit seven. Pedro Alvarez (6), Prince Fielder, who tied Wright's total of five, were also eliminated in Round One.
