Home Run Derby Defending Champion Looks To Repeat

Robinson Cano is looking to defend his 2011 Home Run Derby title in Kansas City on Monday night. It’s been a dozen years since Ken Griffey Jr. repeated as the HRD champ – the only player to ever do it. As AL All-Star captain, Cano selected two-time defending MLB home run champion Jose Bautista, Detroit Tigers slugger Prince Fielder, and first time All-Star Mark Trumbo from the Los Angeles Angels, to join him in the festivities.

National League Seeks First Home Run Derby Title Since 2009

Prince Fielder won the Home Run Derby title in 2009 as a Brewer, but David Ortiz and Robinson Cano have taken the title for the American League the last two years. Despite a recent stint on the disabled list, LA Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp is the captain of the National League squad. Kemp selected Cardinals’ crusher Carlos Beltran and Carlos Gonzalez from Colorado. Florida’s Giancarlo Stanton was also picked by Kemp but he had arthroscopic knee surgery yesterday and has been replaced by Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates.

Online Sport Betting Home Run Derby Championship Call

With stacked rosters on both sides, the MLB Home Run Derby betting lines are difficult to handicap. Bovada.lv has posted Bautista as the favorite with 15/4 wagering odds. Angels outfielder Mark Trumbo, who has 21 big flies at the break, along with Kemp and Cano, are the second chalk with a  5/1 line. Because he has the sweetest swing in the bunch, we’ll go with Cano to repeat as the MLB Home Run Derby Champion!
