Prince Fielder put on a jaw-dropping power display at the 2012 Home Run Derby in Kansas City. After winning the 2009 Home Run Derby in St. Louis as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers, Fielder became the second player to win the event more than once, with only Ken Griffey, Jr.’s three titles standing in his way.
The left-handed hitter’s light-tower power produced one tape-measure bomb after another, and by the time the event was finished, Fielder had amassed 28 total long balls. While his longest home run was measured at 456 feet, his average blast was nearly 412 feet.
Naturally, Prince’s prodigious blasts made me consider the prospect scene. More specifically, are there are any minor leaguers who have the potential to one day dominate the Home Run Derby?
Here’s a look at 10 prospects who I would love to see showcase their power in the derby one day.
