As the All-Star Break approaches for Major League Baseball, that means the highly anticipated Home Run Derby which will take place on Monday, July 16th at 8:00 PM EST on ESPN. He'll also be the only participant who has competed in the event previously, as a number of big-name sluggers all declined to participate.

Milwaukee Brewers breakout first baseman Jesus Aguilar and Chicago Cubs sluggers Kyle Schwarber and Javier Baez will all feature prominently in the Home Run Derby. So far, Morrison has proven last year's 38 home run season was a fluke as he has hit just 11 this season.

Many, including myself to an extent, believe the Home Run Derby can have a negative effect on a player in the short term when it comes to their swing. A 45-second timeout is allowed for each player in every round. In the final, each batter gets two timeouts, a 45-second timeout first and then a 30-second timeout.

As for experience, nobody outside of Bryce Harper has particpated in the Home Run Derby before.

However, Blind struggled for form and fitness last season and barely featured during Mourinho's second season at the club. In 4 years in England, he has made 144 appearances , winning the EFL Cup, FA Cup, Community Shield and Europa League.

He didn't have to worry about that.

The inclusion of Muncy gives the Dodgers a Derby participant for the fifth consecutive year. Giancarlo Stanton, his power-hitting teammate and the 2016 champion, also declined. "Obviously not the complete way I want to be involved in the week, but it should be fun".
