Brian Dozier getting a breather
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Brian Dozier returns to the lineup Friday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier returned to the starting lineup Friday night against the White Sox. Dozier was nursing a swollen thumb after sliding into third base Wednesday, which caused him to miss one game. He is hitting .234 with 19 homers and 48 RBI in 406 at-bats.

Brian Dozier absent from Thursday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier has recently emerged from a slump, but has been given the night off Thursday against Kansas City fireballer Yordano Ventura. Eduardo Escobar is manning the position instead.

A 3-for-6 performance in his last two games ended a 1-for-19 run for Dozier, who has not scored a run in the last seven games. He is tied for fifth in the majors in that department this season with 72.

Yoenis Cespedes tops Todd Frazier to win HR Derby
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and Reds third baseman Todd Frazier survived tiebreaking swing-offs in the first round before eventually meeting in the finals of Monday's Home Run Derby, where Cespedes picked up his second straight title with a 9-1 knockout of Frazier.

Cespedes' three first-round homers earned him a swingoff with Athletics teammate Josh Donaldson, and after Donaldson managed just one home run three swings, the outfielder delivered homers in each of his first two swings to advance. He defeated Orioles outfielder Adam Jones 9-3 in the second round after Jones managed four first-round shots, then took down Jose Bautista, who had a competition-best 10 homers in the first round, by a score of 7-4 in the AL Final. Twins home-field competitor Brian Dozier hit just two home runs in the first round, failing to advance.

Frazier played the role of underdog throughout, hitting just two home runs as the first batter in the competition but managing to slide into a swing-off with Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau after Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig failed to hit a single home run before recording seven outs. Frazier went first in the swing-off and managed one home run in three swings but advanced after Morneau went 0 for 3. The Reds third baseman took down Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki 6-2 after Tulowitzki hit four first-round homers. Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton earned a bye after hitting six massive blasts in the first round, but he bowed out to Frazier 1-0 after a long break.

Cespedes joined Ken Griffey as the only players to win back-to-back Home Run Derby titles. He'll likely enter the 2015 competition as the favorite to make it three in a row.
