Can’t always tell the players even with a program

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Feb 12, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees had to double some of their uniform numbers this spring, which leads to a fairly unusual roster. Here are all the uniform numbers in camp. And by the way, position players are listed strictly as INF, OF or C on the official roster, so don’t read into my labeling of certain guys to a more specific spot. Just trying to be more specific for those who aren’t as familiar with some of the minor league guys. I tried to list primary positions for infielders, if they have one.

No. 2 — SS Derek Jeter
No. 11 — OF Brett Gardner
No. 13 — 3B Alex Rodriguez
No. 14 — OF Curtis Granderson
No. 17 – UT Jayson Nix

No. 34 — RHP David Aardsma
No. 35 — RHP David Phelps
No. 36 — 3B Kevin Youkilis
No. 38 — RHP Cody Eppley
No. 39 — LHP Clay Rapada
No. 40 — RHP Matt Daley
No. 41 — RHP Jim Miller
No. 42 — RHP Mariano Rivera
No. 43 — RHP Michael Pineda
No. 45 — C Bobby Wilson
No. 47 — RHP Ivan Nova
No. 48 — LHP Boone Logan
No. 50 — 1BC Mick Kelleher
No. 52 — LHP CC Sabathia
No. 53 — LHP Josh Spence
No. 54 — HC Kevin Long
No. 54 — OF Juan Rivera (is it a good sign that he wasn’t given his own number?)
No. 55 — RHP David Herndon
No. 56 — BNC Tony Pena
No. 57 — BPC Mike Harkey
No. 58 — PC Larry Rothschild
No. 59 — 3BC Rob Thomson

No. 84 — RHP Matt Tracy
No. 85 — INF Gil Velazquez
No. 86 — OF Abe Almonte
No. 87 — C Francisco Arcia and RHP Corey Black
No. 88 — OF Tyler Austin and LHP Juan Cedeno

    Have the Yanks retired Torre’s number 6 yet? Who has number 12 and 21? I also noticed Pettitte’s #46 is missing, among others?

  2. Chad Jennings February 12th, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Interesting. Pettitte is actually not listed on the roster sheet. I assume they simply forgot to put him on there. That’s why I left him out of my list, just didn’t notice his name was missing from the sheet until now.

    Ghostwriter, GB7 passed away.

    I agree with you that I hope the catching competition is won rather than lost.

    Pat M, as I told tomingeorgia earlier today, I do better when I don’t make a habit of posting. But I’ll be around here and there. Can’t resist pitchers and catchers report day. It should be a national holiday!

    Who brought up moving Grandy at today’s press conference? Was it Girardi or one of the reporters? I’m not sure that I see the point in moving Grandy at this stage of the game; I would have done it when he first got here but not now.

    The point would be to improve the defense.

    Making a solid prospect a fourth outfielder seems like a waste to me. If he’s a legitimate prospect, his time is best spent starting, in the minors if not in the Majors. Fourth outfielder is a good slot for a veteran.

    4th OF this year might make every start vs lhp. That’s enough for someone like Mustelier.

  6. SomeGuy32 February 12th, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    2 #54 but no #64?

    =======

    He has potential, and he is not going to get better if he doesn’t play. Another couple of months in Triple-A would probably do him a lot of good. He can be called up in the event of an injury.

  11. jacksquat February 12th, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    What’s Mustelier going to do in the minors, hit .300 again for the 3rd year in a row (including again at AAA)?

    Many regulars disappear in the game threads and I can’t blame them but GB was like a game thread warrior. I’ll miss him in there beating down the hopelessly stupid at which he was quite adept. And I say this as someone who felt his lash on more than one occasion.

    It isn’t like he doesn’t have room for improvement.

    He is 28, need to put him in the majors.

    In response to Ghostwriter…21 I don’t think has been used since O’neil. I have no idea why 12 isn’t being used,not to mention 64 or 69.

    They gave 21 to somebody (can’t remember who) a couple of years ago, much to my chagrin.

    I pick Austin Romine to win the job of starting catcher for the Yanks and this is how I see the division on the last day of the 2013 season:

    Yankees
    Jays*
    Ray
    Orioles
    Sux
    Astros

    *wild card

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 12th, 2013 at 11:25 pm

    Tomorrow I will post the 2013 prediction chart as it currently stands. I think we may have only one prediction at this time.

    Night all.

  20. Bronx Jeers February 12th, 2013 at 11:28 pm

    I predict that the Astros will not finish last in the AL East.

    :wink:

    I think that the Astros are in the AL West.

    And I’m not sure that I’m a believer in the ‘Jays just yet. I think that the AL East is going to be a tough division, winning 95 games in that division will be a great feat. I think that the Yanks are good for about 93 wins +- 4.

    “Like I always say, everyone’s got their reasons, but what I can tell you is I keep working hard and I keep trying my best. I’m not going to be doing this for the rest of my life, you know what I’m saying? At some point, enough is enough. But I think when you work hard, things pay off. I don’t care if people have their doubts about the things you’re capable of doing. As long as your name is not being mentioned in a situation like that, I think it’s okay.”

    OK Papi :roll:

    A-Rod is a more honest human being than Ortiz (I refuse to call him that other name).

    Yeah, I pulled that out of my butt, but that’s also what Ortiz is doing with his comments.

  30. blake February 13th, 2013 at 7:31 am

    @Joelsherman1: Column 1 http://t.co/O9cSqdwg Perhaps no time in last 20 yrs has #Yankees margin for error been as slim as it is this yr

    I agree …. However their rotation is better than a lot of years and should keep them afloat if healthy

  31. MTU February 13th, 2013 at 7:34 am

    Good Morning.

    It’s great to see real baseball has officially started.

    Now we’ll get to see how prescient the Yankee management either was or wasn’t in real time.

    ;)

  32. blake February 13th, 2013 at 7:39 am

    MTU! Hey buddy

  33. MTU February 13th, 2013 at 7:41 am

    the division might be it’s weakest in 20 years, too.

  35. austinmac February 13th, 2013 at 7:52 am

    The Daily News reports Adams will not be in MLB due to a back injury. He’s out as a back up.

  36. blake February 13th, 2013 at 7:54 am

    “the division might be it’s weakest in 20 years, too.”

    nah….I was worse last year. The Jays are better…..the Sox shouldn’t be as much of a disaster ….I think the Rays took a step back but to me it’s the same at least.

  37. blake February 13th, 2013 at 7:55 am

    MTU,

    the skinny is that ST is finally here…..so one way or another baseball is around the corner and so is spring time and that’s reason to be happy.

  38. MTU February 13th, 2013 at 8:02 am

    Blake-

    Yup. Spring always brings hope and the possibility of renewal.

    :)

  39. randy l. February 13th, 2013 at 8:03 am

    mtu-

    “prescient” is kind of a big word for hal’s austerity program.

    i think words like “cheap”, “dumb”, “stupid” fit the budget better :)

    that said, the yankees could surprise this year. ichiro and hafner are wild cards. you never know.

    it’s just very strange going into a season hoping to be surprised.

    last year at this time, i felt that the yankees would almost for sure make the playoffs , but the team just wasn’t that interesting to me once the writing was on the wall with the montero trade. that trade was the sign that cashman had lost his way and there was no one in management to tell him otherwise.

    it’s not that one trade wrecks a franchise. it’s more like watching a bad chess player make a move that just exposes him as a bad player. yankee management showed that the montero trade was just the beginning of the end for the present management team.

    the yankees really need to mix up management. they’ve got into some kind of gridlock with creativity. they just seem kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place.

  40. MTU February 13th, 2013 at 8:04 am

    Only really weak team in our Division are the Stro’s.

    Everyone else is competitive IMO.

  41. blake February 13th, 2013 at 8:05 am

    Stros are in the west MTU….you’re rusty ;)

  42. MTU February 13th, 2013 at 8:08 am

    Randy-

    I think we have a potentially very good Team but the age-related risk factor is quite high on the O side of the ball.

    Insufficinet depth there IMO.

    I have been under the operating hypohesis that Hal wants to sell.

    Actions become a little more understandable if you take that POV.

    Perhaps I’m wrong. Been there before.

    :)

  43. MTU February 13th, 2013 at 8:10 am

    Oops Blake.

    Man. You’re right. Better get in for a tuneup.

    :(
