Perfect Game Profile

Ciuffo has one of the best combinations of defense at a premium position and offensive potential of any player in the 2013 class, the reason he is the No. 14 overall prospect by Perfect Game and the No. 3 ranked catcher. He has very quick and athletic actions behind the plate to go with a plus throwing arm capable of regular 1.8 pop times and a big left handed swing reminiscent of Atlanta Braves All-Star Brian McCann. Ciuffo’s name is properly pronounced “SHOE-foe.”
