On Friday, we travel to Seattle to find value in a NRFI between the Mariners and the Angels.

The Mariners will send out their ace in Robbie Ray. Coming into today, Ray is 17-4 to the NRFI with an impressive 10-1 home NRFI split. In 87 first-inning batters, Ray has only allowed a .218 average with 20 first-inning strikeouts.

Here is how Ray has done in the past against these Angels hitters:

  • Taylor Ward: 0-for-3
  • Luis Rengifo: 0-for-2
  • Max Stassi: 1-for-2

Some key Angels hitters have also entered a slump as well:

  • Jared Walsh: 2-for-22
  • Taylor Ward: 3-for-18
  • Jo Adell: 3-for-16

The Angels will counter with Patrick Sandoval. Coming into today, Sandoval is 12-5 to the NRFI. In 72 first-inning batters faced, like Ray, he has held them in check only allowing a .206 average.

Here is how Sandoval has fared in the past matchups:

  • J.P Crawford: 2-for-18
  • Ty France: 4-for-11
  • Carlos Santana: 0-for-2
  • Eugenio Suarez: 1-for-8

It should be noted that Kyle Lewis and Crawford have both struggled since the All-Star break, both hitting under .150 in their last seven days.

The Angels NRFI on the road 78% of the time in 2022 and without Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon they have struggled offensively.

The Mariners have achieved the NRFI 71% of the time in 2022, but without Julio Rodriguez, in the leadoff spot, we will look to see an increase in this number while he remains on the IL.

Take the NRFI between the Mariners and the Angels.

As always, six outs to glory…
