Every new season there are a lot of old faces who are not any longer with a team and a lot of new faces who are replacing them. Usually a new player is assigned one of the departed players' uniform numbers. Here are the matches between the old and the new uniform numbers. Three of them are unassigned and Chris Parmelee switched his number from 2011. Joel Zumaya and Darin Mastoianni have not been formally assigned numbers yet.

Left the team:

5 Michal Cuddyer, now: J.R. Towles
16 Jason Kubel, now: Josh Willingham
18 Jason Repko, now: Ryan Doumit
20 Matt Tolbert, now: -
21 Delmon Young, now: Jason Marquis
25 Jim Thome, now: -
27 Steve Holm, now: Chris Parmelee
36 Joe Nathan, now: -
37 Jim Hoey, now: Sean Burroughs
44 Chuck James, now: Matt Maloney
50 Jose Mijares, now: Jason Bulger

    I believe Danny Valencia has also changed his number from 19 to 22.

    that's what I thought, but he is still listed as 19. He wanted to change, for sure, but I wonder whether he got AP'd

    Update: In the BP video posted by Phil Macke at 1500ESPN, Danny is wearing #22, but the MLB Twins Web site still shows him with 19. We'll see how it turns out.
