Adam Duvall will participate in the Home Run Derby at 8 p.m. July 11 at Petco Park in San Diego, the Cincinnati Reds announced Thursday.
Duvall, the Reds’ lone All-Star, will face Wil Myers, of the Padres, in the first round. The winner will face the defending champion, Todd Frazier, of the Chicago White Sox, or Carlos Gonzalez, of the Colorado Rockies, in the semifinals.
The other first-round pairings match Mark Trumbo, of the Baltimore Orioles, against rookie Corey Seager, of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Robinson Cano, of the Seattle Mariners, against Giancarlo Stanton, of the Miami Marlins.
The brackets were determined by home run totals. Trumbo leads baseball with 26 home runs. Duvall has 22.
Duvall will be the eighth Red to compete in the derby. Frazier won the event as a Red last year at Great American Ball Park, becoming only the second player to win the derby at home, following Ryne Sandberg, of the Cubs, in 1990.
