Our first NRFI selection for today highlights Tampa Bay Rays' ace, Tyler Glasnow. This season, Glasnow has been near perfect, holding an impressive 10-1 NRFI record, with a 4-0 Road NRFI split, bringing his overall NRFI record to an impressive 12-1 since 2022. A significant factor contributing to Glasnow's NRFI success in 2023 is his prowess against opposing teams' leadoff hitters, limiting them to a mere .150 average, allowing only five hits in 33 at-bats.
In the past, Glasnow has also held his own against the New York Yankees' hitters, with Gleyber Torres going 2-10, Aaron Judge 2-14, DJ LeMahieu 3-18, and Anthony Rizzo 1-3.
Giancarlo Stanton is currently in the midst of a slump, achieving only three hits in his last 19 at-bats for a .158 average. Additionally, to Glasnow's advantage, the Yankees are one of the worst first-inning hitting teams in baseball, managing just three hits in 19 plate appearances for a .176 average during the last seven days.
Our second NRFI selection today features Milwaukee Brewers' Corbin Burnes. This season, Burnes has been excellent, boasting a 15-6 NRFI record, with a 9-2 Road NRFI split, bringing his overall NRFI record to an impressive 20-6 when pitching on the road since 2022. Similar to Glasnow, Burnes has dominated against teams' leadoff hitters this season, allowing just nine hits in 150 at-bats, resulting in a .153 average.
In the past, Burnes has also held his own against the majority of Washington Nationals' bats, with Jeimer Candelario going 2-7, Dominic Smith 0-3, and Lane Thomas 0-2. It's also worth noting that Lane Thomas has struggled recently, achieving only 10 hits in his last 54 at-bats for a .185 average and he is projected to bat 2nd today.
This custom NRFI selection is priced at (-167) on DraftKings while Barstool provides a slight edge of (-147).
As always, six outs to glory..
