Christian Yelich, Brewers slugger and league leader in home runs, confirmed Saturday night that he would be competing in the MLB Home Run Derby.

This decision came as no surprise, as the fans calling for him to do it has grown immensely as his home run totals continue to go up and up.

After Milwaukee beat the Pirates 3-1 Saturday night, Yelich had this to say about the derby: “I said as long as I was an All-Star I would do it — obviously if I’m feeling healthy enough before the game.”

Becoming an All-Star was no problem for Yelich, as he was the NL’s leading vote-getter for the year.

Yelich is slashing .327/.423/.704 with 63 RBIs on the season, so he made a pretty good case for himself to be the leading vote-getter.

“I feel like now’s as good a time to do it as any, so we’ll see how it goes,” Yelich said Saturday.
