When facing batters the first time through the order, Gray has displayed remarkable proficiency, allowing only 33 hits in 161 at-bats, resulting in a low .205 average.
In the past, Gray has proven his ability to handle a large majority of the White Sox's hitters, limiting the effectiveness of Tim Anderson (3-for-14), Yasmani Grandal (3-for-17) and Eloy Jimenez (0-for-2).
Additionally, to Gray's advantage, the White Sox own the third-worst first-inning batting average in baseball, achieving only seven hits in 53 plate appearances for a lackluster .143 average.
Our second selection for today's custom NRFI features Cristian Javier of the Astros. This season, Javier has been in top form, boasting a remarkable 15-3 NRFI record, including an impressive 8-2 record on the road.
That brings his overall NRFI record to an outstanding 34-8 since 2022.
In past matchups, Javier has demonstrated his ability to handle the Athletics' hitters, limiting the effectiveness of Seth Brown (2-for-13), Brent Rooker (0-for-3), Nick Allen (0-for-4) and Jace Peterson (0-for-1).
Furthermore, to Javier's advantage, the Athletics maintain a 79% NRFI rate when playing at home, with an impressive 41-11 record in such situations.
This custom NRFI selection is priced at (-164) over on both DraftKings and Barstool.
As always, six outs to glory.
