MESA, Ariz. — Below, watch Tampa Bay Rays catcher Nick Ciuffo make several throws during the Arizona Fall League season while playing for the Peoria Javelinas. Ciuffo, who consistently showed off pop times to second base right at 1.90 (which made him among the best in show at the AFL in October), has proven himself to be a talented defender behind the plate and a potentially impactful big leaguer soon because of his glove and arm skills there.
