New York, NY (Sports Network) - Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was named the American League's final participant for MLB's Home Run Derby next week.

On Monday, AL captain Robinson Cano announced he will be joined by Prince Fielder and Chris Davis in the Midsummer Classic staple, but he left one spot open.

The A's confirmed Cespedes, who has 15 home runs entering Tuesday's action, will fulfill that spot via Twitter on Tuesday.

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