Rays ink all but one of top Draftees

ST. PETERSBURG -- Friday's deadline for signing players drafted in the First-Year Player Draft came and went without any drama for the Rays.

Tampa Bay signed all but one of its 11 players chosen in the Draft's first 10 rounds. Nine of them signed before July while first-round pick and right-handed pitcher Ryne Stanek, a three-year player at Arkansas, agreed with the team on July 2.

Fellow first-rounder and catcher Nick Ciuffo, the No. 21 overall pick, signed on June 21. Ciuffo had previously committed to play college baseball at South Carolina.

Sixth-round selection Stephen Woods, a right-handed pitcher, did not sign. He will instead enroll at the University of Albany.
