Home Run Derby: What time it starts and what channel it's on

Sports Minute: Here is the latest Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota sports news from The Associated Press

The stage is set for a Home Run Derby showdown. The young Dodger could be the best value on the 2017 Home Run Derby odds board at +900, smashing 25 home runs and 58 RBI so far this season in just 257 at bats. That's more been a myth than an actual trend, but it's still interesting to see that Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger are competing. They offer a week long free trial, meaning you can watch ESPN free this week, including the Home Run Derby and All Star Game, as well as check out their other channels. This is not the "B" squad. He will face New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez, the No. 8 seed, in the opening round at Marlins Park. However, it's worth remembering that the format has changed. If you're betting the event, keep that in mind as it changes the dynamics. They can get time added to their clock based on home run distance.

No. 1 Giancarlo Stanton Marlins vs. Stanton packs a ton of power and seems to relish the All-Star stage.

Judge will be the top contender to unseat Stanton as the MLB Home Run Derby champion in 2017. He leads the majors in home runs right now with 30 through 84 games while also hitting.329.

Yankees rookie Aaron Judge is ranked No. 2. Hitters can earn 30 seconds of bonus time by hitting two home runs of at least 440 feet.

Bellinger became the fastest to reach 21 career home runs when he reached that mark on June 19, his 51st game.

Stanton's 61 homers from last season's derby will be hard for anyone to beat.

Sano might not be the fan favorite to win the MLB Home Run Derby but he could be a decent dark horse pick.

Major League Baseball would kill to see Judge and Bellinger face off in an all-rookie battle in the semifinals and Stanton against whomever on the other side.

In each round, each player will receive four minutes in which to hit as many home runs as possible. At +1400 odds to win the event, it might be worth it to take a shot on Moustakas to surprise with a small wager.
