Home Run Derby Roster
Captains Jose Bautista and Troy Tulowitzki announced their picks for Monday's Home Run Derby, with one more player still to be named on each side.
|Jose Bautista *||Troy Tulowitzki *|
|Yoenis Cespedes||Todd Frazier|
|Brian Dozier||Yasiel Puig|
|Adam Jones||Giancarlo Stanton|
"Bunch of guys with a lot of power," Tulowitzki said of his team. "More than that, I think they're good guys, got to know them throughout the years."
Stanton is the only player in the National League group that ranks in the top five in the majors in home runs with 21 entering play Tuesday night, but he is the NL-leader in the category.
That means that only one member of the remaining top five home run hitters in the league will be added to Bautista's side. He has a choice of Baltimore's Nelson Cruz (28), the White Sox's Jose Abreu (27) and Detroit's Victor Martinez (21).
Bautista's Toronto teammate Edwin Encarnacion is third in the league with 26 home runs, but is currently on the disabled list. Martinez might also bow out of the running as he's been held out of recent games due to injury.
Fellow Tiger Miguel Cabrera (14) and Los Angeles Angels phenom Mike Trout (20) have already said they will not participate in the contest, which will be held Monday night on ESPN from Minnesota's Target Field.

Also a possibility for the final NL spot is Tulowitzki's teammate and former Minnesota Twin Justin Morneau. Morneau is a candidate in the Final Vote to make the All-Star team.
"If he wins that final vote, there's possibly a chance," Tulowitzki said. "I think it would make a storyline. Played with the Twins all those years. He's definitely on the list if he makes the team. There are some other guys as well that have lobbied and would be good choices."
