Paredes is starting at shortstop Friday against the White Sox.

Paredes' starting nod at shortstop comes as a bit of a surprise given that he was called up to fill in for Jeimer Candelario (personal) at third base, and is widely expected to see the bulk of his innings at the hot corner or second base in the coming years.
