Matt Kemp Leads NL Home Run Derby Sluggers

Despite being out of the lineup since May 30, 2012, Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp will lead the National League into the 2012 MLB Home Run Derby competition. Kemp is the captain of the NL squad that includes Carlos Gonzalez of the Colorado Rockies and 15 year MLB veteran Carlos Beltran of the St. Louis Cardinals. Andrew McCutchen, from the Pirates, replaces injured young Florida star Giancarlo Stanton

Toronto Blue Jays slugger, and two-time defending MLB home run hitting champ, Jose Bautisita is joined by 2009 HRD champion Prince Fielder (then with the Brewers) from the Detroit Tigers, and first year All-Star Mark Trumbo from the Los Angeles Angels.
