Teoscar Hernández is the dinger king of 2024.

The Los Angeles Dodgers slugger claimed this year’s Home Run Derby in dramatic fashion at Globe Life Field, besting Kansas City Royals star Bobby Witt Jr. 14-13 in the final round to claim the $1-million prize.

Hernández was handed the official derby winner’s chain by his former Blue Jays teammate and 2023 derby winner Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – who was wearing Hernández’s old Toronto jersey for the occasion.

Witt nearly pulled out a victory after a slow start to the final round, reaching 11 with a late flurry on his final pitches of regular time. He crushed two more after getting down to his final out in the bonus round and sent a third blast to deep left-center only to see it clank off the wall and give Hernández the title.

Hernández is the first Dodgers player and seventh Dominican-born player to claim the crown.

A post-timeout flurry helped a clearly fatigued Bohm storm back to tie Hernández and force a swing-off in the semifinals. But when Bohm couldn’t walk it off in his bonus round, the door opened for his opponent. Hernández crushed two homers on three swings in the tie-breaker, and Bohm couldn’t match him again. That sent Hernández into the finals.

Witt was on a roll in the semis, crushing 17 homers to give himself a comfortable cushion even after a difficult bonus round. Ramírez didn’t come close to matching that total, sending Witt to the final.

Round 1

The final four is set. Gunnar Henderson came up well short in his derby debut, leaving José Ramírez, Alec Bohm, Bobby Witt Jr., and Teoscar Hernández to vie for the $1 million prize. Bohm secured the top seed for the semifinals and a date with Hernández with a 445-foot blast that broke the tie with Ramírez, who will battle Witt.

Ozuna topped Hernández’s prodigal blast with a 473-foot homer. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to get him to the semifinals, as he came up three long balls short.

The Polar Bear has been put back into hibernation. Two-time derby winner Alonso was eliminated after hitting just 12 in the first round. His rough round ensures Bohm, one of the longest shots to win the event, moves on to the semifinals.

Another long shot, Ramírez, knocked out hometown hero García with a magnificent display of power. Hitting from the left side, the switch-hitter matched Bohm’s 21 dingers.

The first of Hernández’s 19 homers traveled 466 feet, the third-longest homer in the history of Globe Life Field, according to The Athletic’s Brittany Ghiroli.


ARLINGTON, Texas — The Baltimore Orioles’ Corbin Burnes will start for the American League in Tuesday night’s All-Star Game against Pittsburgh Pirates rookie Paul Skenes.

A 29-year-old right-hander, Burnes is 9-4 with a 2.93 ERA in his first season with the Orioles, who acquired him from the Milwaukee Brewers just before spring training. The 2021 NL Cy Young Award winner, Burnes is an All-Star for the fourth straight season. He will become the fifth Orioles pitcher to start an All-Star Game, the first since Steve Stone in 1980.

Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez made the phone call Monday letting Burnes know that AL manager Bruce Bochy of the World Series champion Texas Rangers picked him to start the midsummer showcase at Globe Life Field.

“Oh, that’s awesome,” Burnes responded.

“I hope you can do what I did 25 years ago,” Martinez said, referring to the 1999 All-Star Game in Boston where he was named the MVP after striking out the NL’s first four batters.

“I’ll do my best,” Burnes said. “That’s a lot to keep up with.”

Skenes, who made his major league debut on May 11, is 6-0 with a 1.90 ERA in 11 starts, striking out 89 and walking 13 in 66⅓ innings. The 11 starts for the 21-year-old right-hander will be the fewest for an All-Star and he will become the fifth rookie starter after Dave Stenhouse (1962), Mark Fidrych (1976), Fernando Valenzuela (1981) and Hideo Nomo (1995).

NL manager Torey Lovullo announced last week he was starting Skenes.

Bochy said Monday he has Steven Kwan of the Cleveland Guardians hitting leadoff and playing left field, followed by Baltimore shortstop Gunnar Henderson, New York Yankees right fielder Juan Soto and center fielder Aaron Judge, Houston Astros designed hitter Yordan Alvarez, Guardians third baseman  Jose Ramirez, Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Orioles catcher Adley Rutschman and Rangers second baseman Marcus Semien.

Ketel Marte of the Arizona Diamondbacks bats first and plays second base for the NL, followed by Los Angeles Dodgers designated hitter Shohei Ohtani, Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner, Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper, Milwaukee catcher William Contreras, Brewers right fielder Christian Yelich, Phillies third baseman  Alec Bohm, Dodgers center fielder Teoscar Hernandez and San Diego Padres left fielder Jurickson Profar.


ARLINGTON, Texas — Aaron Judge is looking forward to facing rookie National League starting pitcher Paul Skenes, but the Yankees slugger might need some help to make that happen in the All-Star Game on Tuesday.

Judge, who leads the majors with 34 home runs at the break, is batting fourth for the American League and Skenes, named NL starter last week, is “unlikely” to pitch more than one inning, National League manager Torey Lovullo said.

“We’ve got a good lineup. I think somebody will work a good count or get a base hit. So we’ll see what happens,” Judge said.

“I’ve watched a couple of his game the last couple weeks since he got called up. It’s special stuff, electric stuff,” Judge said. “You can talk about the velocity on his pitches, but the guy is a pitcher. He can work all three, four, five of his pitches, throw it any part of the zone, any count. He’s a complete pitcher. It’s going to be fun.”

Even if Skenes zooms through the first inning, Lovullo said he is leaning toward going to the bullpen for the second inning.

“Most likely, no. We have 11-12 pitchers to get through,” Lovullo said. “That’s probably the hardest part of being the manager, is trying to get every pitcher in the game.”

Skenes said “yeah, it’d be cool” to face Judge, when asked if he wanted to face the slugger.

Judge follows Yankees teammate Juan Soto in the batting order revealed Tuesday by Rangers manager Bruce Bochy, who leads the AL coaching staff. American League batting leader Steven Kwan (Guardians) is leading off with Orioles shortstop Gunnar Henderson to follow. Kwan has a .407 on-base percentage and Henderson hit 28 home runs before the break.

“What do I think?” Bochy asked Monday afternoon of Skenes. “He’s a beast.”


Expressing his love for the city of New York, the Mets and their fans, slugger Pete Alonso — an impending free agent — wants to remain with the team as the July 30 trade deadline approaches.

“I’m super happy to be a Met, super proud to be a Met,” the four-time All-Star said on Monday at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, before he was eliminated in the first round of his fifth Home Run Derby. “And, again, it’s just been awesome. I’d love to stay, and I don’t want to get traded. I love it. It’s home.”

Whether the resurgent Mets are buyers or sellers at the deadline — and whether Alonso will be traded — will likely depend on how they play after the All-Star break. New York holds the third and final wild-card spot in the National League, posting a 25-11 record since June 3.

Alonso, 29, has been a huge factor during the Mets’ turnaround, recording 34 hits, six homers, 20 runs and 21 RBIs in that stretch. For the season, Alonso has hit .240 with 51 RBIs and a team-leading 19 homers in 95 games.

“Right now there’s a lot that could happen (before the trade deadline) and whatever the front office and ownership decides to do, that’s their prerogative,” said Alonso, the lone Mets All-Star. “But, for me, my job is to do whatever I can to help win ballgames every single day.”

The Mets did address a need last week, acquiring veteran right-hander Phil Maton from the Tampa Bay Rays to upgrade their bullpen.

A fan favorite, Alonso was the Mets’ second-round draft pick in 2016. He debuted in the majors three years later, hitting 53 homers, making the All-Star team, winning the Home Run Derby and being named NL Rookie of the Year.

In six seasons with New York, Alonso has hit .250 with 211 homers and 549 RBIs over 779 games.

“I love this organization,” he said. “I love this city so I just want to do the best I can every single night for the guys in the clubhouse and fans.”


With his contract set to expire after the 2025 season, Blue Jays All-Star slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. reiterated his desire to remain in Toronto long term on Monday.

While the Blue Jays have said that they don’t plan to move Guerrero or shortstop Bo Bichette before the July 30 trade deadline, contract talks with Guerrero have not progressed.

“I’d love to be in Toronto,” Guerrero said at All-Star Game Media Day at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. “My family loves Toronto. My kids love Toronto. But at the end of the day, it’s a business. We all need to understand that. So whatever happens, happens. But definitely, I would like to stay there.”

An All-Star for the fourth straight season, Guerrero, 25, went into the break batting .288 with 14 home runs and 55 RBIs across 95 games.

Still, the Blue Jays remain in last place in the American League East at 44-52 and may be sellers at the deadline, something Guerrero isn’t used to during his tenure with the club.

“I control what I can control,” he said. “I’m just trying to go out there and give my 100 percent and whatever happens after that, I can’t control it.”


Likely to land a long-term deal in the $500 million range this offseason as a free agent, All-Star slugger Juan Soto would consider re-signing with the New York Yankees but will have plenty of suitors.

“If I knew the future,” Soto said on Tuesday at All-Star media day, “I would play the lottery. Nobody knows the future. At the end of the day, I’m enjoying this moment, representing the New York Yankees. … I’m very happy to be part of (the game), but nobody knows what will happen next year.”

Preparing for his fourth straight All-Star Game on Tuesday — his first as a starter — at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, Soto said he his eager to call a major league city home for several years.

“It’s a little uncomfortable wearing different jerseys and changing teams,” Soto acknowledged in Spanish. “I’m looking forward to wearing one for a long time.”

Soto, 25, was an All-Star in 2022 with the Washington Nationals, then was dealt before the trade deadline. Last summer, he was at the Midsummer Classic with the San Diego Padres but was sent to the Yankees last winter.

In his first season with the Yankees on a one-year, $31 million deal, the popular Soto has hit .295 with 23 homers and 66 RBIs in 94 games, creating a formidable duo with Aaron Judge, the majors’ home run leader with 34.

“Soto’s been amazing,” Judge said. “He’s the best hitter I’ve ever seen.”

So will Soto and Judge be teammates beyond 2024?

“Who wouldn’t want to be with a team that wins?” Soto said. “For me, while you’re on a winning team, it’s always good to be there and be a part of it.”

Along with the Yankees, the rival Boston Red Sox are among the teams expected to pursue Soto, along with the Chicago Cubs, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Mets and San Francisco. Even the Nationals could be part of the mix.

“That decision’s all based on him and his family and what they want to do and what feels right,” Judge said. “As a teammate, it’s just about being supportive for him and showing him what New York can offer. … I wish him nothing but the best. He’s going to make the right decision for what’s best for him.”

Once the All-Star break ends, Soto and Yankees will look to rebound after losing 18 of their last 26 games and falling behind the Baltimore Orioles in the AL East. As of June 19, New York had the majors’ best record.

“Nobody said it would be easy,” Soto said. “At the beginning it looked like it was easy, but of course it’s not that easy.”


ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Baseball can’t run away from its lack of runs.

Batting averages are near half-century lows. Velocity is at an all-time high.

“Run scoring, it’s not easy to do. It’s hard and it’s getting harder,” Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli said. “Pitchers are getting better by the outing.”

The major league batting average was .240 through April and .239 in May, the lowest since the bottom of .237 in 1968’s Year of the Pitcher. It’s risen slightly along with the temperature as spring turned to summer: .246 in June and .250 in July, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Still, the season average of .243 heading into the All-Star break was just ahead of 2022 and 1968 as the lowest since the dead-ball era ended in 1920.

“Batting average was down a little bit. That’s not necessarily a good thing if you’re looking for action in the game,” baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said in late May.

And the drop isn’t just in the big leagues. This year’s minor league batting average is .243, down from .256 in 2019.

“I didn’t see 100 (mph) when I was playing. It’s commonplace now,” said Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, whose last season was 2008.

Average four-seam fastball velocity is 94.2 mph this year, matching 2023 and up from 91.1 mph in 2008. There were 3,880 pitches of 100 mph or higher last year, up from 214 in 2008.

Just at Triple-A this year there have been 461.

“You can tell as a hitter. Guys are going to the top with the fastballs,” said Dylan Crews, the No. 2 draft pick last year and now at Washington’s Triple-A Rochester farm team.

In an age of shortened attention spans, Major League Baseball has tried to increase action by instituting limits on defensive shifts in 2023 along with a pitch clock to cut dead time. The average time of a nine-inning game dropped from 3 hours, 4 minutes in 2022 to 2:40 last year and 2:36 thus far this season, but runs remain near post-Steroids Era lows: 4.39 per team each game, down from 4.62 last year and up from 4.28 in 2022.

Still, hitters have cut down slightly on strikeouts: the rate of 8.36 per team per game this season is the lowest since 2017, down from 8.61 last year and a record 8.81 in 2019.

“There’s more spin rate. There’s harder throwers,” San Diego star third baseman Manny Machado said. “There’s just so much information and I think that’s what creates the havoc and makes hitting a little bit harder.”

The percentage of fastballs — four-seamers, sinkers and cutters — is 55.5% this year, just above last season’s 55.4%. It was 62.5% in 2015.

Spin rates on sliders, sweepers and slurves have increased from 2,106 revolutions per minute in 2015 to 2,475 this year and their use has increased from 10.9% to 22.5%.

Team wonks view video and dissect data to provide pitchers pointers and batters blueprints. The Dodgers employ senior directors of baseball systems applications and baseball systems platforms along with directors of baseball strategy and information, quantitative analysis, baseball product development, integrative baseball performance, performance innovation lab and baseball innovation.

As a result of the perpetual perusal, pitchers are told what to throw, when to throw and how to throw.

Atlanta’s Max Fried mixes seven pitches: four-seamer, sinker, cutter, slider, sweeper, curveball and changeup.

“The information is so prevalent that there are no secrets,” Fried said. “Baseball is still a game of changing speeds and mixing up looks and if you can just kind of keep guys off balance as much as you possibly can there, you’re going to give yourself the best chance to be successful.”

The New York Yankees built a pitching laboratory known as the “Gas Station” at their minor league complex in Tampa, Florida, ahead of the 2020 season, a type of facility that is now becoming more commonplace. Pitchers from big leaguers down to high school have gone to Driveline in Kent, Washington, to develop their repertoires. “Pitch shape” has become a common term.

“You could go long periods, months maybe, where teams were not adding new pitches,” Baldelli said. “And now you see almost every series, you run in against a team and someone’s doing something completely different. I think the fear has kind of left the major league clubhouses when it comes to making adjustments.”


FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Jurrangelo Cijntje wants to keep his options open with the Seattle organization as a pitcher who switches between throwing right-handed and left-handed.

The 15th overall pick by the Mariners in Major League Baseball’s amateur draft Sunday night, Cijntje said there was a reason he threw righty to lefty batters more often with Mississippi State in 2024.

“I had discomfort in my left side in the middle of the season,” Cijntje said. “I was talking to my pitching coach, and he was like, ‘You can just rest now from the left side and you can just focus on the right side.’ Everything is good now.”

The Mariners said they want Cijntje, who was a switch-pitcher for Curacao in the 2016 Little League World Series, to decide how to proceed as a righty and/or lefty as a pro. Cijntje says he would prefer to continue pitching from both sides.

According to his MLB.com draft profile, Cijntje was a natural left-hander who started throwing righty as a 6-year-old to mimic his father, Mechangelo, a former pro baseball player in the Netherlands.

There is some natural righty in him, though. Cijntje says he writes right-handed, while eating is somewhat like pitching — the 21-year-old uses both hands.

Cijntje agrees with scouting reports that say his fastball velocity is better right-handed, in the mid-90 mph range compared to low 90s from the left side. He throws with a lower arm angle as a lefty, which means relying more on off-speed pitches from that side.

Scouts also believe Cijntje’s future might be as a right-hander, which is why going against the percentages by pitching right-handed against lefties more often this season was notable.

“On the right side, I have more feel just because I used the right side very much more than the left side because at some point I stopped using the left side,” Cijntje said. “But I can feel the left side is becoming better.”

Cijntje was drafted in the 18th round by Milwaukee in 2022 out of high school in the Miami area but chose to attend Mississippi State.

After a rough freshman season in 2023, Cijntje was 8-2 with a 3.67 ERA this past season. He pointed to a 15-5 win over then-defending champion LSU as a launching pad for where he ended up as one of the six prospects awaiting their fate at a rodeo arena in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards.

“I think after that, I started getting good outing after good outing,” Cijntje said. “For me, that was like, ‘You’ve got to be on your A game,’ and don’t back down about nothing.”

Now, Cijntje doesn’t want to back down on pitching righty and lefty.


The second day of the Major League Baseball draft kicked off when the Oakland Athletics drafted Rutgers shortstop Joshua Kuroda-Grauer with the first pick of Round 3 Monday.

Rounds 3-10 were held Monday after the first two rounds (74 total picks) took place Sunday evening. The draft began with the Cleveland Guardians choosing 2B Travis Bazzana of Oregon State.

Some teams’ drafting strategies were on full display. The New York Yankees used their first five picks on right-handed pitchers from the college ranks, including Vanderbilt’s Greysen Carter in the fifth round. Notably, Carter’s fastball can touch 103 mph.

Mississippi State outfielder Dakota Jordan, the top-ranked player available after the first day, slid to No. 116 overall in the fourth round to the San Francisco Giants. Jordan was ranked No. 34 on MLB Pipeline’s big board and passed on football (he played wide receiver) to focus on baseball. He racked up 30 home runs, 23 doubles and 112 RBIs in two seasons in Starkville.

Late in the seventh round, the Houston Astros drafted South Alabama outfielder Joseph Sullivan, whose late grandfather Pat Sullivan won the 1971 Heisman Trophy as a quarterback at Auburn. Pat Sullivan went on to play six NFL seasons and serve as the head coach at TCU (1992-97) and Samford (2007-14) before his death in 2019.

The third and final day of the draft comes Tuesday, featuring Rounds 11-20.
