With the MLB Futures game done as well as Sunday's slate of regular games, the All-Star Break can now begin in earnest with the Home Run Derby on Monday night. Detroit Tigers fans will have a rooting interest in this year's derby as well, with slugger Prince Fielder being part of Robinson Cano's squad for the American League.

Also on Cano's squad is Mark Trumbo of the Angels and Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays.

Taking them on will be Matt Kemp's team, featuring Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies, Carlos Beltran of the Cardinals and Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates. McCutchen is on the squad in place of Giancarlo Stanton, who had to be removed from the squad due to injury.

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