It's just 15 days until pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report for Mesa for spring training, and this post lists the entire roster that will be in camp, plus coaches (and retired numbers, so you can see the entire numerical progression) and spring training instructors (who are listed along with their regular season position in the organization). All the numbers from 1 to 68 are either issued to someone or retired (except 45 -- someone's apparently got a soft spot for Sean Marshall.

You will see a lot of familiar numbers being worn by unfamiliar players this spring, and later this season, just part of the upheaval going on in the organization, as well as other changes. For example: If you bought a No. 17 Matt Garza jersey last year -- better get ready to get a new one. And, one additional non-roster spring training invitation has been issued, to righthander Esmailin Caridad.

And while we're on the topic of Cubs uniform numbers, here's another shameless plug. If you don't yet have your copy of "Cubs By The Numbers", the book co-authored by me, BCBer kaseyi and Matt Silverman, you can order yours at this link.
