The captains have made their selections and the field of eight players who will participate in the 2013 Home Run Derby at Citi Field has been set. 

American League captain Robinson Cano selected Yoenis Cespedes to round out his team (via Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle) after picking Prince Fielder and Chris Davis as part of Monday's initial announcement. 

Let the debate begin.

Unlike last year, when Cano took flak from fans for failing to include a player from the hometown Kansas City Royals, this year's derby is guaranteed to have one player who enjoys a distinct home-field advantage in National League captain David Wright.

But is it enough of an advantage for Wright to capture his first Home Run Derby crown?

Let's take a look at each of the contestants and how their odds of winning stack up against the competition.
