No Twenties

Looking at the Giants roster I noticed a completely irrelevant and highly interesting oddity.  There isn't one player on the 25-man with a jersey number in the 20s.  I bring it up because I'm pretty sure this is the first time that's happened.  It's certainly the first time in my lifetime, since we've always had Clark, or Bonds, or at the very least Holm and Bowker (#s 20 and 21) last year.  Besides them, there's 24 and 27 which are retired, 25 which is probably in unofficial retirement, and 26 which belongs to Mark Gardner. 

But what about the others? 22, 23, 28 and 29 are unaccounted for.  Who in the organization is wearing those numbers?  I find it hard to believe that we have Sandoval walking around wearing a pitchers' number if there are four 20-spots he could take.  So, three questions for the McCoven:

1) Who in the minor leagues wears 22, 23, 28 or 29?  And are they on the same numbering system as the big club?  If the big club's number set extends into the minors, where does it stop - A-ball? AA?

2) When's the last time this happened (nobody with a #20-29 on roster)?  What about 10-19, or 1-9, or 30-39?

3) Shouldn't this have been a Fanshot?
