He’s the ‘home run king’ but he’s not here again. Judge, “Will you participate when it opens in New York?” What does that mean? He seems to be concerned about his left hand’s injury

“We are not preparing to participate in the home run derby,” Judge said in an interview with local media ahead of the match against the Atlanta Braves at Yankee Stadium on the 23rd (Korea Standard Time).

When asked if he would still skip the All-Star Home Run Derby, he said, “One day, I will participate again. It doesn’t mean I will give up forever. If (All-Star Game) is held in New York, I will be able to participate.”

In other words, he said he would be willing to participate when the All-Star Game is held at Yankee Stadium. In other words, it is interpreted that he is not interested in home run derby held elsewhere. 토토사이트 순위

Judge once participated in the All-Star Game Home Run Derby held at Marlins Park (currently Rondipo Park) in Miami Marlins home stadium in 2017 during the rookie season. He has not participated since then for one reason or another, including injuries. This season, it seems that the reason is to prevent left-handed injuries. Judge missed the next day’s game against the Baltimore Orioles on the 19th after being bruised by the left hand hit by opposing pitcher Albert Suarez’s ball in the bottom of the third inning.

He also missed the home run derby held at Dodger Stadium in 2022 when he hit the most homeruns in a single season in the American League. At the main game of the All Star game, however, he started as the second right fielder and had no hits and two strikeouts in two times at bat.

This is in contrast to teammate Juan Soto’s participation in two All-Star home run derbies between 2021 and 2022 when he was with the Washington Nationals. In particular, Soto won his first career victory in the 2022 Dodger Stadium home run derby by beating Jose Ramirez (Claverland) in the first round and Albert Pujols (St. Louis) in the semifinals, beating Julio Rodriguez (Seattle) by 19-18 in the final.

Judge, who hit 24 home runs in the last 50 games, said, “It’s hard to say (what’s better) when asked to compare his batting condition with that of 2022. I think every season is different.”

Meanwhile, Judge hit his 28th homer of this season in the game against Atlanta. When his team was losing 0-1 in the bottom of the first inning, right-hander Charlie Morton hit a 95.5-mile-out fastball to lead to a two-run shot over the right fence. In both leagues, Judge ranks first in six categories: home run, RBI (70), slugging percentage (0.692), OPS (1.1117), slugging percentage (51), and Ruta (191).

However, bWAR ranks second after Baltimore Orioles Gunner Henderson (5.5) with 5.3, and fWAR ranks second after Henderson (5.4) with 5.2. Henderson has a batting average of 0.281, 24 homers, 53 RBIs, 65 runs scored, a slugging percentage of 0.603, and an OPS of 0.983. He is outpacing Judge in scores (65-59), at-bats (345-340), and stolen bases (13-5).
