Chris Davis has 37 home runs at the All-Star Break.

The MLB All-Star Break is here, as all teams have played close to 60 percent of their schedule. On Monday, the 2013 Home Run Derby kicks off the week’s events at Citi Field.

While some of the league’s best power hitters will try to win the 28th edition of the All-Star Home Run Derby, the contest is missing many of this year’s most prolific home run hitters. League leader Chris Davis (37), Pedro Alvarez (24) and Robinson Cano (21) are the only players that rank in the top 20 in home runs that will compete for the title.

Prince Fielder is the second-favorite, behind Chris Davis. Fielder won last year and in 2009. In 2013, he has 16 home runs and is on pace for the lowest home run output of his career. Robinson Cano is the only other former winner in the event.  

David Wright only has 13 home runs, but he will compete for the New York Mets, who are hosting the Break. Only Michael Cuddyer has worse odds to win.

Citi Field is known as a pitcher’s ballpark, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a lot of long balls hit on Monday night. Of the last nine Derbies, the Mets’ home park is the second-easiest place to hit a homer. Recent venues like Busch Stadium in St. Louis, PNC Park in Pittsburgh and AT&T Park in San Francisco were much more difficult hitters’ parks.

The 2013 Home Run Derby is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. ET. Viewers can watch a free live stream online at espn3.com.
