J-Ram hits 17 dingers, but falls to Soto in HR Derby R1

On the surface, it was a strange choice. Just three of Ram?rez’s 19 homers this season and 51 of his 182 career home runs have come from the right-hand side. He has hit a homer every 26.5 plate appearances from the right-hand side, versus every 23.3 from the left-hand side. But it is Ram?rez’s belief that, were the opportunities even, he would hit more homers as a righty than a lefty.
