Home Run Derby showdown between Stanton, Judge, and 6 others

Posted July 11, 2017

The full roster: Judge, Stanton, New York's Gary Sanchez, Los Angeles' Cody Bellinger, Minnesota's Miguel Sanó, Colorado's Charlie Blackmon, Miami's Justin Bour and Kansas City's Mike Moustakas. He's averaged a home run every 10.1 at bats and is third in the majors with a.613 slugging percentage (Judge is first at.697).

Stanton cranked a couple of solo shots, one in the fifth and one in the 11th, in his own personal tune-up for Monday night's Home Run Derby. Aaron Judge (+175) has absolutely crushed the ball in his rookie season, batting.329 with 30 home runs and 66 RBI. He's done a better job of hitting home runs to all fields this year, sending 12 to center and right, as opposed to three in 2016.

Judge should naturally thrive in a home-run competition. After Stanton, players were seeded based on their home run totals through (June 27's) games.
