Astros infielder Alex Bregman, who has hit 11 home runs in his last 24 games, will participate in the Home Run Derby as part of the 2018 MLB All-Star Game festivities.

The announcement came the day after Bregman hit two home runs against the A's, the first multi-homer game of his career.

"I'm excited," Bregman said after the Astros' 8-3 loss to the A's. "It's going to be fun, something that you watched as a kid growing up. I'm definitely excited to participate."

Bregman, who made his major league debut less than two years ago, has a team-high 19 home runs this season, matching the number of longballs he hit in 2017. Bregman leads the American League in homers (14) and OPS (1.085) since the start of June.

This year's derby, which will be at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. on Monday, will feature four players from the AL and NL, with the hitters seeded based upon their home run totals through Tuesday's games.

Fourth-seeded Bregman will open against Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber. Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar, who has 23 home runs this season, is the No. 1 seed. Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, Cubs second baseman Javier Báez, Phillies outfielder Rhys Hoskins and Dodgers infielder Max Muncy are the other participants.

Bregman will be the fifth Astro to participate in the competition, and the first to do so in 10 years. Bregman said Astros bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte will pitch to him.

Lance Berkman finished in a tie for third in 2008. He was the runner-up in 2004, when the All-Star Game was held at Minute Maid Park, the highest finish by an Astro.
