Is Roger Clemens coming back to the New York Yankees? Well, Robinson Cano sure hopes so. He has given up his number 22, which is Roger’s number, and switched to number 24. He chose 24 because it is Jackie Robinson’s number 42 reversed. Jackie Robinson’s number was retired by MLB back in 1997. Mariano Rivera is the only player to be still wearing it.

Cano is hoping that having #22 available would help lure Clemens back to New York however Clemens agent, Randy Hendricks, had this to say:

“No decision will be made until well after spring training, perhaps until after the season starts.”
