Robinson Cano, the 2013 captain for the American League Home Run Derby contestants, announced two of his three selections for the event on July 15 at Citi Field. Cano selected Orioles' first baseman Chris Davis and Tigers' first baseman Prince Fielder, and said that he was still waiting to hear from his final pick.
Davis leads all of MLB in home runs right now with 33 homers on the season. This will be Davis' first trip to the Home Run Derby. Fielder has 15 homers so far this season, and Cano himself has slugged 20 to this point. Both Fielder and Cano have previously won the contest. After putting up a big goose egg last season in Kansas City, hopefully Cano can find some redemption this year. Who do you think the final participant will be for the American League squad?
On the National League side, captain David Wright has selected Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, and Rockies' outfielders Michael Cuddyer and Carlos Gonzalez. Gonzalez currently leads all National League batters with 24 home runs on the season.
