Max Muncy says he'll take part in next week's Home Run Derby at Nationals Park in Washington.
The Los Angeles Dodgers slugger is also a candidate for the National League All-Star squad via the All-Star Final Vote.
Muncy, 27, leads the Dodgers with 20 homers and has hit one every 10 at-bats this season.
"I've always felt the power was there," he said last week. "It's just my swing wasn't built for hitting home runs before, whereas now, I feel like I get myself in a better position to use it."
