Rays on verge of deal with top pick Ciuffo



UPDATE, 6:25: The deal is essentially done and set to be announced on Friday.

DEVELOPING: The Rays are very close to finalizing a deal with top draft pick C Nick Ciuffo for around the $1.975-million slot value.

Ciuffo, a high school catcher from Kentucky, tweeted Thursday that he was in the Tampa Bay area undergoing his physical.

Once that is completed the deal should be announced.
