Alexia Amarista will be wearing Chone Figgins' familiar Number 9 in Tempe.
Infielder Abel Nieves will sport Garret Anderson's #16
Terry Evans will be the first Angel sport #17 since Darin Erstad last wore it in the 2006 season. Evans is out of options and already on the 40-Man roster so there is a high likelihood of him making the team. Evans wore jersey #64 in his previous major league appearances, and the honor of that high number will be handed to Hank Conger when he reports to camp a week from Monday.
Gary Matthews Jr. will not even receive the one-season turnover, as power hitter Mark Trumbo has been assigned #24.
The Troy Glaus hold on #25 was broken in 2008 by the Mark Teixeira trade and now #25 is the property of hot outfield prospect Peter Bourjos.
Even the great Vladimir Guerrero's #27 will be sported in camp. Look for infield prospect Andrew Romine to wear this on his jersey sans dreadlocks.
While Tommy Mendoza is a longshot to make the team out of spring, his assigned jersey of #39 signals that the Robb Quinlan era in Anaheim is most definitely over.
Three available jersey numbers that are not being assigned...
#15, #31 and #34: Tim Salmon, Chuck Finley and Nick Adenhart.
