Gary Sanchez will join Aaron Judge for the Home Run Derby.


“Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I’ll be participating in the Home Run Derby, and even better, I’ve got a friend coming with me,” Judge said as he motioned to Sanchez off-camera.

“Yes,” Sanchez said as the camera panned over to the Yankees’ backstop. “We’re gonna see you in Miami.”

Aaron Judge is the Yankees’ star no one saw coming

Judge leads all of baseball with 27 homers, three more than anyone else, and should offer plenty of pop during the showcase.

And even having missed a month due to injury, Sanchez has 13 homers. He also hit 20 in 53 games for the Yankees as a rookie a season ago.
