NEW YORK -- Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp has asked Carlos Beltran, Carlos Gonzalez and Giancarlo Stanton to join him on the NL side for the All-Star Home Run Derby.

Kemp made the invitations Sunday. The rosters for the All-Star Game July 10 in Kansas City were announced earlier in the day.

Kemp is on the disabled list because of a strained left hamstring. He is unlikely to play in the game, but is the NL captain for the derby and wants to take part.

AL captain Robinson Cano will announce his derby squad Monday.
