Major League Baseball's 33rd annual Home Run Derby takes place on Monday night in Miami, prior to Tuesday's annual All-Star Game.

Mike Moustakas, who already has a career-high 25 home runs, is among the eight competitors at this year's Home Run Derby.

Live coverage of the Home Run Derby begins at 7:00 p.m. Monday on Sports Radio KFH 1240AM 97-5FM.

Moustakas will square off against Miguel Sanó of the Minnesota Twins in the quarterfinals round.

Moustakas is the first member of the Royals to take part in the Home Run Derby in 26 years. The other two Royals who participated in the Home Run Derby were Bo Jackson in 1989, and Danny Tartabull in 1991.
