Fun Trivia Question: Who was the last one not to play for an East team Which player — National Team or American League — wins the T-Mobile Home Run Derby? Surprisingly, the answer is Todd Frazier, who at

Home stadium in Cincinnati won championship . Every hitter since then — Juan Soto, Bryce Harper, Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Pete Alonso (twice) — has From the Eastern Conference team. They are fighting for the game!

We brought this up because of seeing your One is really exciting from your ) team, in the home run derby. We’ll only have eight contenders, but every team has everyone imaginable on board. Today we take a look at each team’s players who will be the best participants in the home run derby in July at T-Mobile Park in Seattle.

AL Dongfang

Blue Jays: Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Vlad Jr. is still in the derby The record for most home runs, he is 18 exist2015, but he has never actually won one of them. it has been10 It’s been years since his dad did this.

Oriole: Gunnar Henderson

He may not be leading his team in home runs now, but he likely will be by the end of the season, we’ve seen clearly when he really what happens when becomes one.

Light: Yandy Díaz
Diaz has consistently had one of the highest out-of-ball speeds in all of baseball, but until this year, out-ball speed was mostly focused on balls going straight into the grass. He’s catching the ball this year, and it’s nice to see him flex those thick arms trying to throw the ball on a night in Seattle.

Red Sox: Rafael Devers

He has declined invitations to attend in the past, but he has the swing plane making a bunch of noise at this event.

Yankees: Aaron Judge

He hasn’t played since winning , in part due to his numbers fell after that event. Regardless, we should still be asking to see it.


Guardian: Josh Naylor
José Ramírez was never involved, could It’s safe to say he doesn’t want to be a part of it right now. Naylor might have the most raw power on this list. It might be fun to watch him unleash it.

Royals: Salvador Perez

Salvy in a derby in

Excellent , hit 14 first round home run, but unfortunately for him, he met Pete Alonso and his 14 .

Tigers: Spencer Torkelson

Maybe home run derby will unleash what we see in his swing all the potential of ? He has hit three home runs in June after hitting just four in the first two months.

Twins: Joey Gallo

Gallo has hit a home run in , lost to Trevor Story at Story’s home court. It will be interesting to see him get another chance.

White Sox: Jack Berger

Louis Robert Jr. is another possibility, but Berger is hitting the ball as hard as this one right now anyone in motion.

Western Union

Angel: Shohei Ohtani

There is a temptation to keep Ohtani from the event at night, considering He has spoken about fatigue this season. We need to resist this temptation.

Astros: Kyle Tucker

With Jordan Alvarez on the injured list, Tucker is the next logical choice. It would be rather ironic if the perennially underrated Tucker got so much exposure during his underperforming season.

Athletics: Brent Rook Even if his bat is cold, how can you not cheer him on?

Mariners: Julio Rodriguez

is perhaps the home run derby’s most popular choice for home in years. He can give us a night we will never forget.

Rangers: Adoris Garcia

Since Nelson Cruz at 453. (It won’t be Cruz’s last big moment at Busch Stadium.) Garcia would be an excellent sleeper option in your pool.

East of the Netherlands

Warriors: Ronald Acu Jr. Nia
He quit the game early last year, But he was supposed to be in a derby where he had just leveled the game. Maybe this is the derby.

Marlin: Luis Arraez

Sure, Jorge Soler might be the “right” guy here, but come on, wouldn’t it be hilarious to see Arraez come up with this ?

Mets: Pete Alonso

Will he be healthy by then? We all hope so, because there is no more enjoyable performance, win or lose, than Pete Alonso in the home run derby.

National: Joey Meneses

We didn’t get the Joey Meneses monster season we were promised, but maybe he’ll really let loose in the Home Run Derby.

Phillies: Bryce Harper

Harper doing this after recovering from Tommy John surgery earlier in the season was a bad idea. But it will be his first derby since winning 2015, and if he did, he’d bring the house down.

Central Netherlands

Winemaker: Rowdy Tellez researchers reliably inform this columnist that this will be the first player in Home Run Derby history to be named “Rowdy.”

Cardinals: Nolan Gorman
Gorman has been the cardinals One of the team’s few bright spots, and it’s all because of his ease, massive power.

Cubs: Christopher Morell Would you believe he has the best home run rate on this team wide?

Pirates: Andrew McCutchen
It won’t be as exciting as seeing Albert Pujols in the derby last year…. ..but it’s kind of close, right?
