11/20 Grabow deal done

Free agent reliever John Grabow finalized his deal, signing a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Cubs on Friday. Grabow, whom the Cubs acquired July 30 from Pirates, gives the team a veteran arm in the pen to set up closer Carlos Marmol.

Great!! I have wanted to buy his jersey, but have waited to make sure that he signed a contract for next year. Does anyone know what his number will be?

I know he requested 34 when he was traded, but because Wood just left last year he was given 43 instead. Will he continue to be 43, or will he get 34?

If I buy the jersey now, it is listed as number 43, but I would hate to have him change his number for next season.
