Short is starting at shortstop and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

The Tigers are facing the left-handed Steven Matz, marking their fifth straight game against a lefty starter, so Harold Castro will hit the bench and Short picks up the start. It looks like the two players are forming a platoon, with Castro on the strong side despite sitting out three of the last five contests. Short is slashing just .146/.245/.308 in 47 games this year, so his fantasy value is limited even when he's in the lineup.
