Filling in the missing Yankees uniform numbers

Happy pitchers & catchers report day! For all you uniform number junkies, the new additions & changes have been updated on Yankees.com.

Among the new additions to the team, Randy Winn takes 22 (last worn by Xavier Nady), Javier Vazquez gets 31 (Mike Dunn) and Marcus Thames grabs 38 (Brian Bruney/Ian Kennedy).

As expected, Joe Girardi is wearing 28 — and we already have a correction! Nick Johnson has claimed 27, leaving Kei Igawa to use 17.

I’ve recently downloaded Derek Jeter’s interview from rapidshare , but there he said nothing about these changes… Perhaps, it happened later.
