Mike Trout will not participate in this year's Home Run Derby.

Trout, who has 20 home runs and 63 RBIs, said he was asked to take part in the Derby but has elected not to do so. He was also picked as a starting outfielder on the AL squad Sunday. Trout said, "I want to do it, and I don't want to do it," on Monday. The Angels outfielder prefers to watch the fun from the sidelines before starting in All-Star Game.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
