Home Run Derby Open Thread

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Adam Jones is in the Home Run Derby at Target Field on Monday at 8. So are nine other guys.

Adam Jones participates in the Home Run Derby tonight. The event will be airing on ESPN at 8 o'clock.

There is a new format this year, which works as follows:

In the first round, everyone gets seven outs - anything other than a home run is an out - to hit as many home runs as possible. The bottom two of the five players in each league is dropped, while the top player in each league gets a bye past the second round.

In the second round, all home run totals are wiped out and the #2 and #3 players in each league will go head-to-head, again getting seven outs to hit as many home runs as possible.

In the third round, with all home run totals again wiped clean, the winner from each league in the second round will face off against the #1 player from the first round, getting seven outs to hit as many home runs as they can.

The final round of the Home Run Derby also has a blank slate and will be a head-to-head matchup between each league's winner, with each getting seven outs to hit all the home runs. The winner of this round is the winner.

Jones' competition in the Derby are these guys:

American League:

Brian Dozier, Twins
Jose Bautista, Blue Jays
Yoenis Cespedes, Athletics
Josh Donaldson, Athletics

National League:

Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies
Todd Frazier, Reds
Yasiel Puig, Dodgers
Justin Morneau, Rockies
Giancarlo Stanton, Marlins
