Robinson Cano Names AL Home Run Derby Teammates

The YankeesRobinson Cano won the 2011 Home Run Derby; the pitcher was his father, former major league pitcher Jose Cano. There were many hugs!

We do not yet know if that lovely family scene will be repeated in Kansas City, but we now know who Cano, who was named AL HR Derby captain, will have as his teammates:

All three of those men can hit baseballs a long way and should put on a good show for the fans at Kauffman Stadium.

Jose Bautista is on a home-run tear; he’s hit seven in his last 13 games and currently is the major-league leader with 26.

Prince Fielder has hit just 12 so far this season; if you think that’s because of Comerica Park, he’s got seven there, five on the road.

Mark Trumbo has also been hot lately; he has 10 home runs in his last 23 games and is leading the AL in OPS+.

Let the man who can hit the most batting-practice pitches out of the ballpark win!
