The MLB Home Run Derby is set to take place on Monday, July 8 at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN. Yet, just days before the event, there was still some drama left to decide.
After Javier Baez was forced to pull out of the event due to injury, MLB announced that Joc Pederson of the LA Dodgers will take his place. With that, the entire field is now set, along with the bracket revealing first-round matchups.
