Tigers' Zack Short: Takes seat Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short is not starting Tuesday's series opener against the Red Sox.

Having gone hitless in four consecutive games, Short is in the midst of a considerable slump, marked by a .102 average and 16 strikeouts in 49 at-bats since the All-Star break. Harold Castro will play shortstop and bat seventh Tuesday.

Tigers' Zack Short: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short isn't starting Friday's game against the Orioles, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Short will get a breather after going 1-for-11 with a double, two RBI, a run and four strikeouts across the last three games. Harold Castro will start at shortstop and bat seventh.

Tigers' Zack Short: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short will be on the bench Monday against the Twins.

Short finds himself on the bench for the second time in three games. He's hit an unimpressive .188/.306/.400 in 28 games this season, though that's still overall better than the .217/.277/.360 line produced by Willi Castro, who starts at shortstop in his absence.

Tigers' Zack Short: Returns to lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the Royals.

Short returns to the lineup after a one-game absence. Willi Castro was recently recalled from Triple-A Toledo, but the team has been using him mostly at second base, so Short should remain the team's primary shortstop, at least until Niko Goodrum (calf) returns from the injured list. Harold Castro, who started Saturday, will continue serving in a utility role.

Tigers' Zack Short: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short isn't starting Saturday's game against the Royals.

Short will get a breather after he went 2-for-14 with two home runs, three RBI and two strikeouts across the last four games. Harold Castro will shift to shortstop while Willi Castro takes over at second base.

Tigers' Zack Short: Pops fifth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short went 1-for-4 with a home run in Thursday's win over the Rangers.

Short launched one of three home runs against Texas starter Mike Foltynewicz, giving the infielder five home runs this season. Short has become the team's top option at shortstop with Niko Goodrum (calf) on the injured list, though Goodrum is expected to begin a rehab assignment within the next week. His return could cut into Short's playing time.

Tigers' Zack Short: Slugs fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over Texas.

Short broke a 1-1 tie with his two-run shot to left field in the second inning. The homer broke a six-game slump during which the shortstop went 1-for-17 with seven strikeouts and no extra-base hits. Short has had a difficult time adjusting to major-league pitching in his rookie campaign, as he is slashing a meager .188/.322/.391.

Tigers' Zack Short: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short isn't starting Monday's game against the Rangers.

Short had started in each of the last three games, and he went 1-for-10 with a run and five strikeouts during that time. Harold Castro will start at shortstop and bat seventh.

Tigers' Zack Short: Sidelined for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short is not starting the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

The infielder struggled considerably leading up to the break, hitting .111 and striking out 14 times in his last 27 at-bats. Niko Goodrum will start at shortstop for the first game, with Short likely to get the nod Saturday night.

July 16, 2021 10:44 AM
Tigers' Zack Short: Hits bench for afternoon game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short will not be in the lineup for the afternoon portion of Friday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Short sits after starting nine straight games to end the first half, a stretch in which he recorded just three hits. Niko Goodrum starts at shortstop in his absence.

July 10, 2021 11:44 AM
Tigers' Zack Short: Added to Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short will start Saturday's game in Minnesota and bat eighth after Nomar Mazara (illness) was scratched from the lineup, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Short will fill in at shortstop for Niko Goodrum, who is moving to the outfield to replace Mazara.

Tigers' Zack Short: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

The shortstop launched a three-run home run Monday, but he has gone 0-for-13 in four games since. Short has played 17 games this season and is hitting .196 with a pair of homers and eight RBI. He's also drawn 13 walks. Niko Goodrum will start at shortstop and bat seventh Saturday.

Tigers' Zack Short: Homers, drives in three Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Monday's win over the Rangers.

Short hit his second home run of the season in the sixth inning with a runner on to extend the Tigers' lead to 6-0. He added a sacrifice fly in the eighth to make it 7-0, and Detroit would hang on for the 7-3 victory. Short has started to see more playing time and has responded well, as he now has a .937 OPS for the season. Niko Goodrum (finger) began a rehab assignment recently and could complicate things when he's able to return to the team, but Short is at least making a case for a regular role moving forward.

Tigers' Zack Short: Back on bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Short started at shortstop during both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland, but he'll begin Friday's game on the bench. Harold Castro will start at shortstop and bat seventh.

June 28, 2021 03:04 PM
Tigers' Zack Short: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short is out of the lineup for Monday's game against Cleveland, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Short started each of the Tigers' previous three games at shortstop, going 2-for-8 with a home run, double and a walk. Harold Castro will get the nod at the position in Monday's series opener, but Short could at least be part of a timeshare while the Tigers await the return of top option Niko Goodrum (finger) from the injured list.

Tigers' Zack Short: Remaining with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short will remain on the 26-man roster after serving as the club's 27th man during Saturday's doubleheader against Houston.

Short went 2-for-2 with a double and home run during Game 1 before striking out in all three of his Game 2 plate appearances. Short is now hitting .313/.476/.563 across 16 at-bats with the Tigers this season. He could see the bulk of the time at shortstop in coming days with Niko Goodrum out with a finger injury. Isaac Paredes was optioned to Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding roster move.

Tigers' Zack Short: Called up for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short was recalled by the Tigers to serve as the 27th man in Saturday's doubleheader against the Astros.

Short will be available for both games of the twin bill, and he'll start at shortstop and bat ninth in Saturday's matinee. In five games with the major-league club earlier this year, he hit .273 with two runs, a stolen base, five walks and six strikeouts.

June 5, 2021 05:52 PM
Tigers' Zack Short: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Saturday.

Short appeared in just three games during his most recent stint on the major-league roster, and he went 2-for-6 with two runs, three walks and three strikeouts. His demotion will make room for right-hander Jose Urena (forearm), who will be reinstated from the injured list Sunday to start the series finale against the White Sox.

May 29, 2021 04:12 PM
Tigers' Zack Short: Recalled by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short was recalled by the Tigers on Saturday.

Short spent just over a month in the minors and slashed .227/.424/.409 with two home runs, nine runs scored and seven RBI in 13 games with Triple-A Toledo. He'll reclaim a major-league roster spot after right-hander Jose Urena (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, but Short should serve mainly in a depth role.

April 24, 2021 04:44 PM
Tigers' Zack Short: Sent down by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short was optioned to the Tigers' alternate training site following Saturday's loss to the Royals, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Short was called up by the Tigers on Wednesday and went 1-for-5 with two walks and three strikeouts while appearing in three games. However, he'll now be removed from the major-league roster to make room for Miguel Cabrera (biceps), who will be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday's game against Kansas City.
