Josh HamiltonJosh Hamilton is currently on pace to start for the American League in the All-Star Game, but he will not be participating in the Home Run Derby, he said Friday.

"I already said to them, I'm not doing it," Hamilton said, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Let [Jose] Bautista hit 29, and maybe I'll come back and do it."

Hamilton hasn't participated in the Home Run Derby since hitting 28 homers in the first round of the 2008 All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium. Despite Hamilton's record first-round, Justin Morneau won the event in 2008.

Hamilton missed a month of the season with a shoulder injury and has hit just four home runs, but three of them have come since June 3.
