This is amusing considering the rumors about Seattle possibly trading top pitching prospct Taijuan Walker in a deal for David Price.
Today the Mariners introduced Corey Hart and Logan Morrison as official signings and Hart was given jersey No. 27, which is the number Walker wore during his debut this year.
MLB.com reporter Greg Johns quickly tweeted out this:

And then 15 minutes later Walker himself tweeted this:
Oh I didn’t know I gave up my number??? Hmmmm
— Taijuan Walker (@tai_walker) December 13, 2013
You know, just a little late Friday drama on Twitter.
UPDATE: Walker deleted his tweet in a hurry, but it existed.
UPDATE #2: Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times asked Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik about the numbers-related tweets and “after a good chuckle” he replied “we are not trading Taijuan.”
