Sano In Tonight's Home Run Derby

Sano In Tonight's Home Run Derby

Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge is the second seed going against Bour.

Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton will defend his Home Run Derby title on Monday inside his home ballpark.

Others scheduled to appear in tonight's Home Run Derby include Cody Bellinger of the Dodgers, Mike Moustakas of the Royals, Miguel Sano of the Twins, Charlie Blackmon of the Rockies, Justin Bour of the Marlins, and Gary Sanchez of the Yankees. This year's contest is at Marlins Park in Miami.

Not only will Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger-who have been dismantling opposing pitching at historic rates this year-take part in the annual exhibition, but Giancarlo Stanton is back after last year's memorable performance.

Bellinger's first-round opponent is Colorado's Charlie Blackmon (+2000), who has the unenviable task of potentially needing to go through all three of Bellinger, Judge and Stanton to win the derby.

Stanton and the rest of the Marlins flew back to Miami early Monday after completing a sweep of the Giants in San Francisco on Sunday. Born in Lakeland, which is about 240 miles northwest of Miami, Sale is 11-4 with a 2.75 ERA and a major league-leading 178 strikeouts in 127 2/3 innings. His 30th home run of the season broke a Yankees rookie record that had stood for 81 years.

In each round, each player will receive four minutes in which to hit as many home runs as possible. Bellinger has hit.261 with 25 home runs, 58 RBI and 50 runs scored in 257 plate appearances so far this season.

The sports betting odds indicate the expectation is that it will be a two-horse race between Stanton and Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees.

Stanton has walloped a 504-foot home run this season, while Judge has reached 495 feet with his longest shot.

Sanchez missed 21 games with a right biceps injury, which helps explain why he has the lowest total of all the competitors.

While the Derby has always been a spectacle purely for fan entertainment, Major League Baseball tweaked the event a couple of years ago to up the entertainment value.

Stanton will face one of Judge's teammates in the first round.
