We were all aware that the Phillies have a loaded camp in 2020.  That led Todd Zolecki of MLB.com to wonder if the Phillies would run out of uniform numbers.  Well, we broke it down and they are really close.  As of Monday the 10th, the Phillies have all numbers currently assigned, retired, or held out of circulation with the exception of 65, 93, 96, 97, 98, and 99.   65 and 96 could be assigned in the very near future, depending the outcomes of a couple moves.

Some notes about the jersey numbers:

  • Jay Bruce switched to number 9.  I hear it is to honor someone; I am sure we will hear that story this Spring.
  • That move means that Phil Gosselin gets bumped to number 8.
  • Coaches Pedro Guerrero and David Lundquist took numbers for now in the high 90s to free up space for a couple of the new relievers. They rarely are seen in uniform anyway, due to a limit on the numbers of uniformed coaches.
  • The numbers of Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard, and Chase Utley remain out of circulation.
  • 1, 14, 20, 32, 36, and 42 are previously retired and number 34 will be retired soon for Roy Halladay.
