Today I managed to get my hands on a spring training roster. The cool thing about this roster was that it included uniform numbers. Those who follow my site know that’s something I care about, so I took the opportunity to update my uniform number history section of the website with the 2009 number assignments. This includes everyone on the 40 man roster, as well as all the current spring training invites.
If you’ve never visited this part of my site, I have the history of each uniform number going back to 1972. I have the info from the Senators days, but I never seem to find the time to get that all in there. :)
Anyway, a couple of guys had changes in this list, they are:
- Joaquin Arias changed from 4 to 3, due to Jackie Moore’s now having 4.
- Travis Metcalf changed from 30 to 15, due to Gerald Laird’s departure.
- Josh Frasier’s 66 was taken by Netfali Feliz. No idea what Frasier is wearing, or even if he’s bullpen coach again.
