Orioles' Nick Ciuffo: Resides on MiLB IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Triple-A Norfolk placed Ciuffo on its 60-day injured list July 21 due to an unspecified issue.

Ciuffo was sidelined for the first month and a half of the minor-league season with a fractured hand, but he returned to action in mid-June and played in 12 games before being shut down a month later. Norfolk hasn't indicated whether Ciuffo suffered a setback with the initial injury or is dealing with a different concern, but regardless, he's unlikely to play again in 2021.

Orioles' Nick Ciuffo: Ready for 2021 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo (hand) rejoined Triple-A Norfolk on Monday and is expected to be activated from the 7-day injured list in the near future, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Ciuffo has been sidelined since late April after fracturing his right hand while training at the Orioles' alternate site. Once he's formally cleared to return from the injury, Ciuffo will likely share work at catcher with Brett Cumberland and Chance Sisco.

Orioles' Nick Ciuffo: Out through mid-June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo (hand) isn't expected to make his 2021 debut until early-to-mid June, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Ciuffo will be on the shelf at Triple-A Norfolk to begin the season while he recovers from a fractured right hand. Once healthy, the 26-year-old will provide depth behind the plate at the upper levels of the minors.

Orioles' Nick Ciuffo: Recovering from hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo isn't included on the roster for Triple-A Norfolk while recovering from a hand fracture, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

The 26-year-old suffered the injury a couple weeks ago when hit by a pitch, so he won't be ready for the start of the minor-league season next week. Ciuffo hasn't needed surgery, so he could be back sooner rather than later if he can avoid any setbacks.

Orioles' Nick Ciuffo: Joins Orioles on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Monday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Ciuffo was part of the Rangers' player pool in 2020 but never joined the 40-man roster. He's received 50 career plate appearances at the big-league level, all for the Rays, hitting a poor .186/.250/.279. He'll presumably fill an organizational depth role this season.

Rangers' Nick Ciuffo: Added to summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo was named to the Rangers' 60-man player pool Sunday.

Ciuffo, who is not on the 40-man roster, has 19 games of major-league experience with Tampa Bay over the last two seasons. The 25-year-old catcher finished 2019 in the Reds' organization and batted .231/.303/.385 over 175 plate appearances. He's one of seven catchers in Texas' player pool, four of which are not on the 40-man.

Rangers' Nick Ciuffo: Invited to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training.

Ciuffo had lackluster results in the minors last season, hitting just .231/.296/.378 with three home runs and 19 RBI at the Triple-A level. The 24-year-old has appeared in the majors in the past two seasons, but he has failed to make enough of an impact to see significant time. Ciuffo will get the chance to develop at spring training, but he likely has some work to do before he can secure a major-league roster spot.

Reds' Nick Ciuffo: Back in action at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds reinstated Ciuffo (thumb) from the 7-day injured list at Double-A Chattanooga on Friday and assigned him to Triple-A Louisville.

Ciuffo underwent surgery on his right thumb in early June, a development that likely factored into the Rays' decision to release him just under a month later. The backstop quickly landed a minor-league deal with Cincinnati and was cleared for a rehab assignment in the lower rungs of the minors back in mid-August. Now that he's proven his health, Ciuffo should get an opportunity to play at least semi-regularly at Louisville as the International League season winds down.

Reds' Nick Ciuffo: Lands deal with Cincy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo (thumb) agreed to a minor-league contract with the Reds on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

A first-round pick of the Rays in 2013, Ciuffo will change organizations for the first time after Tampa Bay released him earlier this month. Ciuffo was assigned to Double-A Chattanooga and was placed on the 7-day injured list while he remains on the mend following surgery to repair a sprained left thumb.

Nick Ciuffo: Gets walking papers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays placed Ciuffo (thumb) on unconditional release waivers Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Any of the league's other 29 teams can still poach Ciuffo off waivers after he was cast off the 40-man roster Friday, but the Rays have no intention of retaining him in the likely event he goes unclaimed. Ciuffo is still recovering from thumb surgery, so even if he quickly lands a minor-league deal with another organization, he's not expected to return to action until August at the soonest.

Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo (thumb) was designated for assignment by the Rays on Friday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Ciuffo has been on the minor-league injured list since early June after undergoing surgery on his thumb. The 24-year-old is about halfway through his 8-to-10 week recovery timeline and is looking at a return in early August.

Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Undergoes thumb surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo underwent surgery on his thumb Tuesday and will miss 8-to-10 weeks, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

It's unclear as to when the catcher suffered the injury, but he'll remain on the shelf for at least two months following the procedure. Assuming all goes according to plan in his recovery, Ciuffo is looking at a return in early August.

Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Likely candidate for callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo is likely to be called up from Triple-A Durham with Anthony Bemboom (knee) apparently headed to the injured list, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Ciuffo was just sent back down to the farm last Saturday after spending four days with the big-league club and logging one start. With the Rays now down another backstop, Ciuffo's presence will be required while the likes of Michael Perez (oblique), Mike Zunino (quadriceps) and Bemboom remain on the mend.

Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays optioned Ciuffo to Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Ciuffo was just called up Wednesday and started Friday's game, but the Rays still decided to send him back down to open up a spot for fellow catcher Travis d'Arnaud. Ciuffo will garner consideration next time the Rays need to bring up a catcher from the minor-league ranks.

Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Makes jump to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays recalled Ciuffo from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Ciuffo is expected to serve as the Rays' No. 2 backstop for at least the next 2-to-3 weeks while Michael Perez recovers from the right oblique strain that landed him on the 10-day injured list. The Rays had mostly deployed Perez in the short side of a platoon with Mike Zunino, and the lefty-hitting Ciuffo could get the opportunity to fill a similar role.

Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Ciuffo filled in for Mike Zunino over the weekend while Zunino was on the paternity list, but he only received a single plate appearance. It will likely take an injury to Zunino or backup catcher Michael Perez for Ciuffo to wind up back in Tampa.

Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Heading to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo will be called up by the Rays on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Mike Zunino was placed on the paternity list in a corresponding move, so Ciuffo's stay on the roster may be a brief one. Ciuffo got into 16 games for the Rays last season, hitting .189/.262/.297.

Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Sits again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 23-year-old heads to the bench for the second straight game as the Rays rotate their catchers, with Adam Moore grabbing the start Friday. Ciuffo has struggled since his call-up in early September, slashing .194/.268/.306 in 36 at-bats.

September 27, 2018 10:32 AM
Rays' Nick Ciuffo: Day off Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ciuffo is not in Thursday's lineup against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Ciuffo will receive a standard day off for maintenance purposes after going 1-for-4 with one RBI and two strikeouts during Wednesday's victory. In his place, Jesus Sucre will handle the catching duties.
