Justin Morneau, Josh Donaldson added to Home Run Derby
The Home Run Derby field is now complete, as Justin Morneau joins the NL team and Josh Donaldson joins the AL.
The Home Run Derby will take place as part of the All-Star Game festivities in Minnesota's Target Field this coming Monday.
So there are two guys with strong Minnesota ties, as Morneau spent the first 11 years of his career with the Twins and Dozier is currently playing for them.
The A's have two entrants, including the defending champion. Cespedes isn't the only former champ, though, as Morneau won in 2008 (aka "the Josh Hamilton year" in Yankee Stadium).
Stanton leads the majors in average distance per home run while Puig isn't too far behind and Frazier has a pretty underrated power bat. And, of course, we can't forget about how much power Bautista has.
In all, should be a fun event. I'll take the NL, though.
