Who will take part in Home Run Derby?

While neither Bryce Harper nor Giancarlo Stanton will be in the Home Run Derby, ESPN's David Schoenfield suggests players such as Mike Trout, Joc Pederson and Kris Bryant could be solid options to take part.


Harper to skip Home Run Derby

Bryce Harper, who is tied for second in the NL with 25 homers, said his father, who pitched to him during his 2013 appearance, would be unavailable this time. Ron Harper reportedly recently had rotator cuff surgery after a snowboarding accident.
