  • Now pitching for the Yankees, #89, Miguel Yajure

    In Monday night’s Yankees-Rays tilt, MLB history was made. Yajure’s relief appearance was the first-ever instance of a Major League player wearing #89, which was the last unused uniform number.

    Is he any good? One Gen Z trend I don't mind is good players wearing high numbers.

      Last number until someone goes to 3 digits.

        Given that the Yanks have retired about 80 numbers already, the pickings of available numbers are slim.

          I'm surprised someone hasn't worn it, just because it had never been worn.

            And don’t forget that Eddie Gaedel wore 1/8.

              I remember when Fisk's # 72 was so unusual. Players never took numbers that high! Now we have Abreu with 79, Cease with 84 and Robert with 88.
