Aaron Judge bringing a Yankees buddy to Home Run Derby

Fortunately for baseball fans, that won’t be the case.He now leads the league with 27 home runs and a majority of them simply defying the laws of physics and gravity.Judge, leading Major League Baseball with 27 home runs, ended the suspense about his participation in a video released by the Yankees on Twitter in which Judge and team mate Gary Sanchez said they would take part. “And even better, I’ve got a friend coming with me”.”Yes”, Sanchez said. “We will see you in Miami”. The 2016 derby champ launched 61 homers in last year’s event at Petco Park, including 20 in the final round to knock off the 2015 champion, Todd Frazier. He also leads the American League in batting average and RBIs. José Canseco was the first to do so, with 23 in 1986, and the next year, Mark McGwire gave the Oakland Athletics another player to hold that distinction when he had 33 by the break. He’s been named Rookie of the Month all three months this season.The three youngsters will be joining Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who announced that he will be defending his derby crown last week. Sanchez also did it last August. He now leads the majors in all three triple-crown categories.
