Home Run Derby 2012: Lineup, TV Schedule, Start Time And More

Monday evening will bring the Home Run Derby to Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City as the All-Star break begins for Major League Baseball. There won't be any Minnesota players on the squad but it's still filled with big hitters and should provide a good show.

The American League will send out a team with Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees as captain. Cano's team will feature Prince Fielder of the Tigers, Mark Trumbo of the Angels and Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays.

The National League will counter with a team led by Matt Kemp. His team will feature Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies, Carlos Beltran of the Cardinals and Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates. McCutchen was not originally on the squad, but was brought in to replace Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanto, who was recently injured.

The derby will begin at 8:00 p.m. ET on Monday at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. It will be televised on ESPN.
