Reds third baseman Todd Frazier was announced as Home Run Derby participant on Tuesday.

Third baseman Todd Frazier will swing for the fences Monday when he competes in the Gillette Home Run Derby in Minneapolis.

He will be the first Reds player to compete in the annual event since Ken Griffey Jr. in 2000.

Frazier is one of ten Major League Baseball players that will take part in the home run derby. He said his brother Charlie will likely pitch to him during the competition.

The New Jersey native is also one of four Reds named as a National League All-Star selection. He is accompanied by catcher Devin Mesoraco, starting pitcher Johnny Cueto and closer Aroldis Chapman.

The All-Star game is Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

The 2015 MLB All-Star Game will be held at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.
