Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman will headline the field for Major League Baseball's Home Run Derby at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., on Monday night.

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar, Philadelphia Phillies left fielder Rhys Hoskins, Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy, and the Chicago Cubs duo of Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber round out the rest of this year's competitors. 

As has been the case since 2015, the showdown will proceed in a single-elimination, bracket-style format.
