Major League Baseball announced Saturday that the Yankees' Nick Swisher and the Diamondbacks' Chris Young will take the final two spots in Monday's Home Run Derby.
Swisher replaces teammate Robinson Cano, whom the Yankees barred from competing due to a back issue (which apparently has not impacted his ability to bat .337 and play in 85 of New York's 86 games).
Meanwhile, major league home run leader Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays was never asked to compete, even though he has indicated he would have accepted.
"I love the support," Bautista told the Canadian Press on Saturday before going out and hitting his 24th homer. "A lot of people have been voicing their displeasure with me not even being asked. It's nothing I can control, just sit here and wait until they give me a call."
That call is apparently never going to come. Gee, think MLB wanted a Yankee in the lineup?
