Cano to be in HR Derby

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

MLB announced today that Robinson Cano will participate in the 2010 version of the Home Run Derby.

The other five players who have already committed are: Miguel Cabrera, David Ortiz, Vernon Wells, Corey Hart and Matt Holliday.

Now I guess it's cool to have Cano in the Derby but I don't really like it. A lot of guys screw their swing up trying to hit homers and there stats suffer in the second half of the season. Cano's on pace for an MVP season, and I don't think he should screw it up for the HR Derby. Cano isn't a Ken Griffey, Jr. type player who has a natural home run swing. He's more of a line drive hitter who lifts homers out. If he tries to uppercut homers during the Derby, it could affect him during the regular season.
