Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Sent to minors
Ciuffo was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Ciuffo entered spring training attempting to challenge Michael Perez for the backup catching job, but he struggled by going 1-for-14. The 23-year-old got his first taste of the majors in September and will be the top depth option at catcher in the minors for Tampa Bay.
