Continued: Home Run Derby notes: Dozier was nervous in Derby debut

 

Others skip Derby, too

White Sox rookie Jose Abreu leads the AL with 29 homers, despite spending 15 days on the disabled list with tendinitis in his ankle.

“Coming into the season, that wasn’t a goal of mine, to participate in a Home Run Derby,” Abreu said. “If life gives me the opportunity in the future, and I feel like it’s the right opportunity, then I feel like I’d be happy participating. But this year, it wasn’t something that I wanted.”

Baltimore’s Nelson Cruz ranks second in the AL with 28 home runs.

“I had the chance to be there once [in 2009 when he was runner-up to Prince Fielder],” Cruz said. “I think it’s a great event. It’s a great experience, but right now, what my team needs is for me to rest and be focused for the second half.”

Toronto’s Edwin Encarnacion ranks third in the AL with 26 home runs but is on the disabled list with a strained quad.

So, none of the AL Derby contestants ranked in the top five in home runs. Josh Donaldson has 20 homers, Brian Dozier 18, Jose Bautista 17, Adam Jones 16 and Yoenis Cespedes 14.
