Yoenis Cespedes, Detroit

The Detroit Tigers were able to land four All-Stars, so they really can’t be too unhappy, however, it would be a crime if the back-to-back Home Run Derby champion is not in Cincinnati.

Cespedes is slashing .293/.320/.491 with 12 home runs, 47 RBI and 50 runs in 334 at-bats this season. The on-base percentage is surprisingly low, which is probably why Billy Beane traded him, but fantasy owners love the production in the other categories.

Unfortunately, even if Cespedes wins the Final Vote, he will not have the opportunity to defend his Home Run Derby Crown.
