Another year, another home run derby, but this one is missing back-to-back defender Yoenis Cespedes. Tonight's contest is an eight-man bracket with new rules based on the clock rather than on number of outs. Further changes were made today due to the possibility of rain late in the evening to improve the pace of play.
