Yankees' Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton Comment on Participating in $1M HR Derby

New York Yankees superstar sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton said they'd consider taking part in the 2019 Home Run Derby after Major League Baseball announced the prize pool will be increased to $2.5 million, including $1 million to the champion.

"I always enjoy doing it," Stanton told Ken Davidoff of the New York Post on Thursday. "It just depends on where I'm at in the season and how I feel. That's the most important thing."

Judge said he wouldn't rule out participating, but added he'll "probably still wait until it’s back in New York," per Davidoff.
