The format was a smashing success last season as then-Red Todd Frazier won in front of his home crowd at Great American Ball Park. Frazier is back in the derby this season as a member of the White Sox and could face Duvall in the second round if both win their opening matchups. Duvall is the No. 3 seed and will face Padres outfielder Wil Meyers in the first round while Frazier, the No. 2 seed, will take on Carlos Gonzalez of Colorado.
The 87th All-Star Game is set for 7:30 ET Tuesday night on Fox with fellow outfielder Jay Bruce joining Duvall to form the Reds contingent. Both are reserves. It is the first All-Star selection for Duvall while Bruce is going to the Midsummer Classic for the third time.
