The Cubs will have 61 players in spring camp when it opens next week, the entire 40-man roster plus 21 non-roster invitees, as announced Wednesday afternoon. Here I present my annual numerical list of all players and members of the coaching staff who’ll appear in camp.

As always, I’ve included the Cubs’ retired numbers so you can see the complete numerical progression, as well as the coaching staff. Non-roster players in italics.

A couple of numerical notes: Craig Kimbrel, who wore No. 24 last year, has returned to his previous No. 46 that he wore in Boston, San Diego and Atlanta. Apologies to those who raced out last year and bought KIMBREL 24 jerseys.

Hernan Perez wore No. 14 with the Brewers. Obviously that’s not available with the Cubs, so he reversed it to No. 41.

With David Ross returning as manager and taking back the No. 3 he wore as a Cubs player, Daniel Descalso has switched to No. 33, which he wore in St. Louis. Nothing personal, Daniel, I’m sure you’re a great guy and all, but I’m hoping I don’t see you wearing No. 33 for the Cubs after spring training.

Lastly, I’d like to take a moment for a bit of self-promotion, if you’ll indulge me. If you still don’t have the latest edition of “Cubs By The Numbers” (complete through 2015), here’s your link to buy one!

Pitchers and catchers have their first workout just one week from today, February 12, and the first spring game is 17 days away, Saturday, February 22 at Sloan Park, when the Cubs will take on the Athletics.
