Home Run Derby Baseball Odds and Predictions

With everyone hitting lots of home runs, it might seem like the Derby field would be open as you can. To begin with, you need to take under account the ball park, and every one of the participant’s background in that particular park. This year’s game is in Washington so the clear preferred would be Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper. It hasn’t been a fantastic season for Harper in terms of batting average, but he’s still among the league leaders in home runs. Harper has said he will take part in the Home Run Derby if he makes the All-Star team. “So count me in for the Derby if and only if I make the team,” Harper said to the Washington Post. “But if I do I’ll be a participant in the 2019 HR Derby.”
Another player to consider in the Home Run Derby if he is chosen is rookie Juan Soto of the Nationals. He has shown outstanding power this season, and it has moved to the cleanup spot in the lineup for Washington. He hit a home run across the next deck at Nationals Park before this season.
If you’re looking past the two hometown heroes, you may want to think about players that have played at Nationals Park over just a few times. J.D. Martinez leads the American League in home runs and that he played at the National League until last year. He could be a fantastic choice if he chooses to engage. And remember about Jesus Aguilar of the Brewers, as he is behind Harper because of its lead in National League home runs and young star Ozzie Albies of the Braves who is making his mark this year.
