As I do here every spring, I present to you a full numerical roster of all the players and coaches in Cubs spring camp, which is now available after the announcement of the Cubs’ 32 non-roster invitees earlier today. Also included are the Cubs’ retired numbers, so you can see the full numerical progression.


  • Jameson Taillon, who has worn No. 50 his entire career, will retain that number as Rowan Wick switches to No. 99. Wick will become just the third Cubs player to wear No. 99 after Todd Hundley (2001) and So Taguchi (2009).
  • Yan Gomes wore No. 7 last year. Dansby Swanson claimed that number, as he wore No. 7 in Atlanta, so Gomes is switching to No. 15. The last Cubs catcher to wear No. 15 was Tim Federowicz in 2016.
  • While the uniform numbers for Javier Báez (9), Kris Bryant (17) and Anthony Rizzo (44) have not been reissued — even in Spring Training — since those players departed, the Cubs issued Willson Contreras’ old No. 40 to Mike Tauchman for this spring camp. Besides the three noted above, the only other numbers not issued are 22 and 34.
  • No. 25 has been issued to new reliever Brad Boxberger, the second straight year a pitcher has worn that number (Steven Brault in 2022). Before 2022, the last Cubs pitcher to wear No. 25 was Jim Hughes, in 1956.
  • Mark Leiter Jr. wore No. 62 in 2022. He switches to Alec Mills’ old No. 30 this year.

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!
