Subtle Sign

Traditionally, uniform numbers in baseball are valued by players and doled out carefully by teams and their equipment managers.

It’s unlikely, for example, that Garret Anderson‘s number 16 will be worn this season, just as Tim Salmon‘s number 15 is at least temporarily in storage (though both could be retired eventually). 

Even Darin Erstad‘s number 17 has gone unused since his departure.

What are we to think, then, about Frankie Rodriguez‘s number 57 being assigned to minor leaguer Luis Figueroa?  It’s probably just a parting shot  minor oversight.
