I think that a "legitimate" baseball uniform number is an indication that he is definitely on the radar, though it is no guarantee that he is likely to make the club. After all, a lot of other outfielders also have low numbers:
Drew Stubbs (#6)
Laynce Nix (#17)
Chris Dickerson (#21)
Wladimir Balentien (#25)
Jay Bruce (#32 -- usually a pitcher's number, but still a low number)
It is doubtful that all six of these players make the team out of Spring Training.

Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.
