2013 MLB All Star Game: Baltimore Oriole Chris Davis selected for the Home Run Derby

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The major league leader in home runs, Chris Davis was a no brainer pick for A.L. captain Robinson Cano.

American League captain Robinson Cano made his picks for the Home Run Derby team today, and with his second pick he selected Chris Davis.

It's no surprise that Davis has been picked. He leads the world in home runs this season, hitting 33 bombs in just 88 games so far (he's on a pace to hit 60). When asked about the derby earlier, Davis said he absolutely would participate if chosen, and that he plays HR derby every day during batting practice.

The Detroit Tigers' Prince Fielder will join Cano and Davis as participants for the A.L., and Cano will announce his last pick tomorrow.

New York Met David Wright is serving as the N.L. HR Derby captain. He picked Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals along with Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer from the Colorado Rockies.

The Orioles have twice had winners of the HR derby. Cal Ripken, Jr. won in 1991 and Miguel Tejada won in 2004.
