Robinson Cano wasn't offering any hints about whom he has selected to be part of the AL Home Run Derby team for next week's All-Star Game in Kansas City. A formal announcement will be made today, he said, but getting any advance information out of him proved as difficult as it is to get a fastball past him these days.

"I've got everything ready," he said of the three players he has chosen who along with himself will represent the AL in the Home Run Derby. "But we're going to announce it [today]. That's all I can say."

Told Angels slugger Mark Trumbo already has confirmed he'll be part of the squad, Cano didn't budge.

"I can't say anything about that because I'll be able to announce everything [today]," he said. "Sorry."

Cano was clearly as locked in about not saying a peep about his Home Run Derby team as he is at the plate. A torrid June, when he hit 11 home runs, has carried into July, when Cano opened the new month by hitting a two-run homer in the third inning of the Yankees' 4-2 win over the White Sox yesterday at the Stadium.

If Old-Timers' Day offered a nostalgic remembrance of the past, Cano offered a reminder there are a few Yankees legends in the making. His rocket over the right-center field wall came off a 3-2 pitch from White Sox starter Gavin Floyd, who had escaped trouble in the first inning when Cano grounded into a double play with no outs and the bases loaded.
