As I do here every spring, I present to you a full numerical roster of all the players, coaches and instructors in Cubs spring camp. Also included are the Cubs’ retired numbers, so you can see the full numerical progression.

A few notes:

  • Jake Arrieta returns to the Cubs and his familiar No. 49, which was not re-issued by the Cubs during his three-year stay with the Phillies. You might recall that the last player to wear that number before Jake was Carlos Marmol (2006-13).
  • Robert Stock, if he makes the Cubs’ active roster during the regular season and keeps the number, will become the first-ever Cub to wear No. 89.
  • The Cubs will have two Millers in camp, Ian (No. 1) and Shelby (No. 29).
  • Kyle Ryan will wear his usual No. 56, but is currently out of camp on the COVID-19 list.
  • The minor-league signings of Pedro Strop and Cameron Maybin have not yet been made official. Both are expected to receive non-roster invitations to big-league camp. Once those signings are official, they’ll be assigned uniform numbers.
  • Per this tweet, Phil Ervin would have worn Ben Zobrist’s old No. 18, had the Cubs not lost him on waivers to the Braves:

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!
