Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez will join Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels, Trey Mancini of the Baltimore Orioles, Pete Alonso of the New York Mets and Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies in the All-Star Home Run Derby at Denver’s Coors Field on July 12.
Perez will become the fourth Kansas City player in the derby after Bo Jackson (1989), Danny Tartabull (1991) and Mike Moustakas (2017).
Perez, a seven-time All-Star, entered Friday ninth in the AL with 19 home runs.
Alonso won the most recent derby in 2019.
