Rays, top draft pick agree to contract

NEW YORK — The Rays and their first-round draft pick, C Nick Ciuffo, have reached a deal set to be finalized and announced today.

Ciuffo, a Kentucky high schooler taken with the 21st overall pick on June 6, is expected to get a bonus around the $1.975 million that MLB slotted for that spot.

Ciuffo is likely to join the Gulf Coast League team in Port Charlotte.

The Rays also have a deal with fourth-round pick INF Kean Wong, for $393,500, according to Baseball America.
