New York's David Wright and Robinson Cano announced their respective teams for the 2013 Home Run Derby on Monday.

Wright, the captain of the National League, will participate in front of his hometown Mets fans along with a pair of Colorado Rockies - Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer - and Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper.

The captain of the American League, Cano, announced two of his three teammates for the Midsummer Classic staple - Baltimore's Chris Davis and reigning champion Prince Fielder. On Tuesday, Oakland's Yoenis Cespedes was named to round out the AL group.

Gonzalez currently leads the NL with 24 home runs, Cuddyer has 15 with a .337 average, the 20-year-old Harper has 13 while being limited with a knee injury and Wright also has 13.

The AL boasts more power, at least during the first half of this season. Davis has mashed a whopping 33 home runs heading into Monday, the two-time champ Fielder has 15 for the Tigers and Cano, the 2011 winner, checks in with 20 so far for the Yankees.

The derby will be held Monday, July 15 at Citi Field, one day before the All- Star Game.
