MESA, Ariz. — As we did almost two weeks ago, let’s take a look at some Nick Ciuffo GIFs showing off the Tampa Bay Rays catching prospect’s blocking mechanics. All these GIFs were clipped from our footage taken during Arizona Fall League play in October and November of 2016, when Ciuffo suited up for the Peoria Javelinas.
These particular Nick Ciuffo GIFs were clipped from a night game he caught for the Javelinas on the road at Sloan Park against the Mesa Solar Sox. For more, you can watch our selection of catching videos for Ciuffo posted to our YouTube channel: blocking and receiving, framing pitches, and throwing to bases.
