March 14, 2022
Ciuffo signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Monday that includes an invite to big-league spring training.
ANALYSIS
Ciuffo had a brief stint in the majors with Baltimore last season, but he spent most of his time at Triple-A Norfolk. The 27-year-old has appeared in just 21 major-league games across the last four seasons and will presumably serve as organizational depth for the White Sox in 2022.

AL FAAB Factor: Waiver Pickups of the Week
September 26, 2021
Erik Siegrist checks out the talent available in the AL for the final week of the regular season and notes that Nick Gordon might be finally breaking out.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2015
2014
Ciuffo reached the majors for the first time in September, coming to the plate 44 times that month and hitting .189/.262/.297. Nothing about that line or Ciuffo's .262/.301/.380 performance in 60 games for Triple-A Durham suggests a particularly bright future, but he'll nevertheless enter camp battling Michael Perez for the backup job behind Mike Zunino. A backup role is all Ciuffo projected for as a prospect, as he can hit and defend competently but doesn't stand out on either side of the ball. His batting lines have typically been brought down by low walk rates. With an uncertain role and a low ceiling, Ciuffo does not warrant a second thought at draft time.
Ciuffo has yet to advance past rookie ball since getting drafted out of high school in 2013, advancing through the Rays’ system at a tortoise-like pace, even by catcher standards. He slashed .224/.289/.333 with four home runs in 211 plate appearances last season, and while weak contact likely played a role in his .271 BABIP, he should be a bit more fortunate with balls in play going forward. This season, the Rays will probably send him to a short season league followed by an appearance with the Low-A affiliate, and barring an injury, he will be able to log closer to 400 plate appearances in his age-20 season. Ciuffo projects to be an average power producer with a slightly above average hit tool for his position, and he will definitely stick behind the plate. Even so, at his current pace there might be two presidential elections before Ciuffo reaches the big leagues.
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.
