Best round: Julio Rodriguez 32, first round
In the first round of the 2022 HR Derby, it was the Seattle Mariners rookie who put on the best show. J-Rod led us off in his matchup vs. the Texas Rangers SS and came out on top. In Seager’s defense, he’s got the second-best round among scores in the first, just got the bad draw against Rodriguez.
Rodriguez came close to reaching his total from the first round and beat the reigning two-time champ with ease in the second round. Alonso finished with 23 after hitting 18 before the bonus minute.
