Juan Soto announces that he will participate in the Home Run Derby next week. Nationals hitting coach Kevin Long will throw to him.

Be a real shame if Soto messed up his swing. Oh wait.

So many violent swings to further aggravate his shoulder as some on here believe it is a lingering issue.

Schwarber explained why he would not want to take part in Home Run Derby, and especially in the final "all you can hit in a couple minutes". Roughly, changes your swing and wears you down.

To each his own. I think there are plenty of guys who have participated and gone to final rounds who have been fine after it.

He would have won it in 2018 if the Royce boys hadn't gamed the system...

It's like a besbol casino buffet.  Best possible outcome is, well, pretty bad.

Tres Berrera and Trea Turner might have something to say about the single-handedness of the effort.
