The 2017 Home Run Derby is set with Charlie Blackmon and Mike Moustakas rounding out the eight-man field, per Buster Olney of ESPN.
Here is a full list of the entries:
- Giancarlo Stanton (Miami Marlins)
- Aaron Judge (New York Yankees)
- Gary Sanchez (New York Yankees)
- Cody Bellinger (Los Angeles Dodgers)
- Justin Bour (Miami Marlins)
- Miguel Sano (Minnesota Twins)
- Charlie Blackmon (Colorado Rockies)
- Mike Moustakas (Kansas City Royals)
The event is scheduled for Monday, July 10 from Marlins Park.
Giancarlo Stanton is the defending champion and will be the fan favorite as the local star, although teammate Justin Bour will also get plenty of cheers.
Of course, Aaron Judge might be one of the top attractions thanks to his major league-leading 27 home runs. He and fellow Yankees star Gary Sanchez will be elite competitors in this event.
"It's going to be awesome," Yankees teammate Starlin Castro said, per Mark Herrmannof Newsday. "I'm going to be on the field, supporting my teammates. ... I've never seen anybody hit the ball like that. I enjoy every single moment those guys hit the ball like a joke."
Even Stanton is excited to see Judge for the first time.
"It's like the twin you've never met, I guess," the Marlins star said, per Tim Healey of the Sun Sentinel.
The showcase will be a chance for young stars like Judge, Cody Bellinger and Miguel Sano to display their power.
