From June 15 until Wednesday, Bellinger had seven homers to Moustakas' two, while Blackmon had three to Bour's two.
Stanton is tied with Cincinnati Reds first basemen Joey Votto for the NL home run lead with 26 so far this season. He lifted the ball previous year, and could get himself to the finals if he gets past the Yankees' Gary Sanchez.
Each player has four minutes in a round, and they are awarded an extra 30 seconds if they can hit two home runs of more than 440 feet in a round. His average exit velocity sits at 97.3.
Judge is listed at 6-7, 282 pounds. In June, he became the fastest player in Major League Baseball history to 21 homers. The sweet-swinging lefty hit just two home runs in a 39-23 National League victory led by Mark McGwire.
This sets up the possibility of a Judge vs. Bellinger semi-finals, and a Judge vs. Stanton (or Sanchez) finals. The Twins' corner infielder has 21 home runs on the year.
Colorado traces its Derby participation roots back to 1994, when Dante Bichette was the first to step up to the glorified BP plate in purple pinstripes.
The timer in each round starts when the first pitch is thrown, and a subsequent pitch can't be thrown until the batted ball is caught, ruled a home run, hits the ground, or leaves the field in foul territory. His longest shot went 458 feet, only 2 feet shorter than Stanton's season best.
This year's events are being held at Marlins Park, home of the Miami Marlins. The vast majority of his home runs have been pulled into the right-field stands. San Diego's Petco Park was kind to CarGo, who slugged 12 home runs in round one. It does help to have some experience in this competition.
The main difference for Miami's highest-paid player is that this year he'll get to join in the All-Star Game fun the following night.
For starters, Stanton was given the No. 1 seed by virtue of his win a year ago. Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas matches up with Sano in the four-five matchup.
