View this listing. Five years later, two participants (Bautista, Morneau) have no baseball and three others (Stanton, Tulo, Cespedes) are injured. The best current hitter of this derby are Todd Frazier and Adam Jones. (What a disappointment, by the way, that Puig's only appearance in the Home Run Derby ended with … zero homers.) The point is, five years is a long time.
• T-Mobile Home Run Derby: Monday, July 8, 8 pm ET on ESPN
But to be just a masochist, today we thought we were trying to predict how the Derby lineup would be at one in five years still to be determined all-star location will look like. (Note: Please visit this article in five years.)
Will Alonso become bored with the Home Run Derby until 2024? It may depend on whether he has won it by then, because it is not as if he has less power or will be less popular. (If he can break through and be a fan favorite as this Mets season has gone by, he has unquestionable stamina.) If there is one player who becomes the cespedes of future derbies, then it's probably Alonso that will be making his derby debut he gives on Monday night.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, TOR (current age: 20)
Guerrero will be under contract with the Jays for another two years, and you must think Until then, they will be much more competitive than today. The only question Vlad asks is if he has finally won the derby, which he will win by 2024 … or if he is aiming for his sixth win in a row. At some point he and his father will be the only father and son to win derbies, be it this year or in 2024.

The Padres project will be in full bloom by 2024, and if Reyes can figure out the plate discipline by then, he might be a superstar. Even if he is not, he can still beat the ball to the moon.
Adley Rutschman, C, BAL (current age: 21)
The No. 1 of 2019 will be 26 years old in 2024 and is just beginning his career. Until then, he will direct the revival of the Orioles under the management team that they hired in 2018, and possibly the most exciting young star in the game. By the way, a funny fact: no catcher has ever won the home run derby, maybe he's the first!
Jimenez has established himself lately as the incredible thug we all thought would be him and by the year 2024 he's shooting the way baseball goes. He may be approaching 200 homers in his career. This guy hit a homerun with a broken bat; Imagine what he can do in a derby?
Andrew Vaughn, 1B, White Sox (current age: 21 years)
He was the top power specialist in the design. So if we include Rutschman, we have to include him. It's not hard to imagine Vaughn and Jimenez wearing these cool black White Sox jerseys and baseball until late at night. Vaughn seems to be a crowd pleaser, because he is not very big for such a power hitter. That does not matter if your swing looks like this:
A word to describe the beauty of a sweep of Andrew Vaughn?

We already get a feel for the massive power that Alvarez brings with it. He and
One day, right? One day, he'll come to the conclusion that he's sick and tired of everyone appealing for joining the Derby, and just doing it, right? We can all dream.
