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

The full roster isn’t finalized yet — there are still some officially unannounced signings, noted below — but I thought I’d present this to you today, and when the signings listed below are announced I’ll update this article.

A few notes:

  • Here is why Seiya Suzuki is wearing No. 27 instead of the No. 51 he wore in Japan:

Those were the only words Suzuki spoke in English during the presser. If he could even come anywhere close to what Mike Trout is, that’d be a huge bonus for the Cubs.

  • Marcus Stroman will become the first Cub to wear No. 0. He wore it with the Mets last year. There are actually quite a few MLB players who have worn that number, 31 in all. Here’s the complete list.
  • Clint Frazier will become the first Cubs player to wear No. 77. It has been worn once in Cubs history by a coach, Eric Hinske, from 2014-17.
  • Nick Madrigal becomes the first Cubs player to wear No. 1 since Terrance Gore in 2018. Since then it was worn by assistant hitting coach Terrmel Sledge in 2019 and 2020.
  • You’ll note that numbers 9, 17, 34 and 44 have not been re-issued. I suspect they won’t be for a while, though none of them are likely to be permanently retired.
  • Codi Heuer (No. 12) and Adbert Alzolay (No. 73) are on the 60-day injured list and not participating in camp, so I note them here but not in the list below.
  • The following players have been reported to have been signed by the Cubs, but the deals have not been officially announced by the team so numbers have not yet been assigned: Jonathan Villar, Steven Brault, Mychal Givens, Robert Gsellman and Daniel Norris.

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!
