This is going to be epic television.

Cubs teammates Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber have been entered into the 2018 Home Run Derby contest.

The 8-man bracket has been set, and Schwarber is ranked a No. 5 seed followed by Baez at No. 6.

In round one, Baez gets Max Muncy while Schwarber takes on Alex Bregman. Since they are in opposite sides of the bracket, they could theoretically play each other in the finals if everything goes perfectly.


Bovada released their latest Vegas odds on Thursday, and both 'El Mago' and 'Schwarbs' are both heavy underdogs compared to frontrunners Bryce Harper and Jesus Aguilar. I see a lot of talented sluggers on the following list, but I think that Baez or Schwarber have a genuine shot as anyone.

Vegas Odds on HR derby
Bryce Harper – 11/4
Jesus Aguilar – 7/2
Max Muncy – 5/1
Freddie Freeman – 11/2
Rhys Hoskins – 11/2
Javy Baez – 6/1
Alex Bregman – 9/1
Kyle Schwarber – 9/1
