New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton said he might compete in the 2022 Homer Run Derby at Dodger Stadium on Monday, July 18.
“Nothing’s official, but I definitely could be there,” Stanton told reporters following Friday’s 12-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox.
Stanton hasn’t been in the Home Run Derby since 2017 when he played for the Miami Marlins. He won the 2016 Home Run Derby after hitting a record 61 home runs.
If Stanton does participate in this year’s event, he will be the only one from the Yankees as his teammate Aaron Judge has already said he does not have an interest in competing. Judge won the Derby in 2017.
Earlier on Friday, Stanton was named an American League All-Star starter. The 32-year-old is hitting .237/.323/.510 with 21 home runs in 69 games.
