RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Ciuffo, the Rays' top pick in the 2013 MLB draft, signed early enough to log 43 games in the Gulf Coast League. He hit .258 with a .604 OPS but did not homer in his first taste of professional baseball. As a catcher drafted out of high school, he's still a few years away from the majors, but he seems to have solid enough defensive skills behind the plate to stay there in the organization. The power is expected to develop for him over time as he is a solid left-handed bat. He could begin the season in rookie-ball again with a goal of advancing to Low-A over the course of the season.
