NEW YORK (AP) -- Yoenis Cespedes of the Oakland Athletics will swing for the Citi Field fences in the Home Run Derby next Monday night, rounding out the eight-player field.

Major League Baseball announced Tuesday evening that Cespedes has been selected by American League captain Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees. MLB revealed the other participants Monday, saying Cano's final pick had not yet been finalized.

Cespedes will become the fourth player not chosen for the All-Star game to compete in the event. The others were Rafael Palmeiro (2004), Hee-Seop Choi (2005) and Ryan Howard (2007), who was defending his crown from the previous year.
The other members of the AL squad are Baltimore slugger Chris Davis and Detroit's Prince Fielder.

National League captain David Wright of the hometown New York Mets tabbed Washington's Bryce Harper along with Colorado teammates Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer.

Cespedes is the first A's player to participate in the MLB Home Run Derby since Jason Giambi back in 2001.
