Nelson Cruz opts out of Home Run Derby
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Orioles slugger Nelson Cruz has declined an invitation to the Home Run Derby during the All-Star festivities despite a plea from Jose Bautisa, per MLB Network Radio.

"I think the best thing for me is to watch from the side," Cruz said. "I want to stay in shape and make sure I'm ready for every game."

Cruz apparently doesn't want to mess with success. His .290/.356/.582 slugging percentage and 27 home runs put him into the Most Valuable Player conversation.
