Tigers' Zack Short: Losing out on playing time
Short is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies.
Now on the bench for the third time in four games, Short's temporary run as the Tigers' preferred option at second base appears to have come to an end. Andy Ibanez has occupied the keystone in each of the three games that Short has sat out, and Ibanez looks as though he may see the bulk of the starts at the position while Zack McKinstry is seeing most of his opportunities in right field these days to aid a banged-up Detroit outfield....

Tigers' Zack Short: Gets fifth straight start
Short will start at third base and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Rangers.
Short will stick in the lineup for the fifth game in a row, and after producing a 1.012 OPS over the past four contests, he looks like he'll stick around in a near-everyday role while the Tigers deal with a host of injuries. With outfielders Riley Greene (fibula) and Matt Vierling (back) both landing on the 10-day injured list within the past two days, Zach McKinstry is expected to see more time in right field moving forward, opening up room in the infield for Short. The 28-year-old Short will likely rotate between second and third base, with his position depending on whether Nick Maton is included in the lineup on a given day.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Zack Short: In leadoff spot
Short is starting at second base and batting leadoff Tuesday against the Rangers.
He could be used fairly regularly in the leadoff spot versus left-handed pitching while Matt Vierling (back) is sidelined. Short is sporting a nifty .937 OPS with three home runs in 20 games with the big club, although his track record suggest the success is likely to be short-lived (no pun intended).... See More ...

Tigers' Zack Short: Looks good again Saturday
Short went 1-for-2 with two walks and a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the White Sox. He also stole a base.
Short has looked good in 19 games with the Tigers, as he's now batting .310 with a 1.084 OPS. Short has a career .160 batting average with a .588 OPS, so the production this year has been unexpected to say the least. However, the hot stretch could earn him some extended playing time in the short term.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Zack Short: Big game off bench
Short went 1-for-1 with a walk, a three-run home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Royals.
Short pinch hit for Akil Baddoo in the sixth inning when Kansas City turned to lefty Josh Taylor. Short made the decision pay off, as he launched his second home run of the season with two runners on to put the Tigers up 4-1. The utility infielder is now batting .280 with a .939 OPS through 16 games, but he's unlikely to be a regular fantasy contributor unless he starts to see more playing time.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Zack Short: Pops first homer of year
Short went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
Called up Saturday morning to be the 27th man on the roster for the twin bill, Short got the start at his namesake position and batted ninth in the matinee. The 27-year-old rose to the occasion, taking DL Hall deep in the eighth inning for his first big-league homer since August of 2021, and after Short came off the bench in the nightcap to draw a walk and score a run, Detroit rewarded him by keeping him in the majors and sending Tyler Nevin back to Triple-A Toledo in his place. Short isn't going to unseat Javier Baez, but he could carve out a utility role -- in 21 games for Toledo prior to his promotion, he saw action at second base, center field and left field in addition to his natural position at shortstop....

Tigers' Zack Short: Added as 27th man Saturday
Short will be the 27th man for the Tigers in Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Short is even starting at shortstop -- and batting ninth -- in the early tilt versus the O's and right-hander Dean Kremer. He'll head back to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Zack Short: Moves to minors
The Tigers optioned Short to Triple-A Toledo on Monday.
Short will miss out on a spot on the Opening Day roster, with Detroit seemingly set to begin the season with Ryan Kreidler and the newly acquired Zach McKinstry as its reserve infielders. The 27-year-old Short, who posted a .730 OPS in Grapefruit League action, should be able to play on a near-everyday basis in Toledo.... See More ... See Less

Short's stay with the Tigers lasted just one day, with the 27-year-old going unused in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Twins. He'll be replaced on the active roster by Daz Cameron, who was recalled from Toledo to bolster the Tigers' outfield depth after Robbie Grossman was shipped to Atlanta earlier this week....

Tigers' Zack Short: Optioned to Triple-A
Short was optioned to Triple-A Toledo after Saturday's loss to the Twins, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Tigers' Zack Short: Notches steal in 2022 debut
Short went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run and a stolen base in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader win over Oakland.
Short was called up from Triple-A Toledo early Thursday and started at shortstop for the first game of the twin bill. Though he wasn't able to get a hit, the 27-year-old opened the ninth inning with a walk, stole second base and came around to score on a Riley Greene single. Short has a bit of power and speed, but he's never hit well beyond the lowest levels of the minors and doesn't appear destined for more than a reserve role in the majors.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Zack Short: Called up Thursday
Short was called up from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.
Short will return to the majors for the first time this season after he appeared in 61 games with the Tigers last year. He struggled to a .141 average in those contests and hasn't quite produced a better line in Triple-A in 2022. Overall, he's compiled a .225 average with nine homers, 37 RBI, 51 runs and nine stolen bases over 307 at-bats in 85 games for Toledo.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Zack Short: Sent to minors
Short was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Saturday.
Short appeared in 61 major-league games last year but will begin the 2022 campaign in the minors after he went 1-for-9 with two runs, two RBI, a stolen base and a walk across seven Grapefruit League outings this year.

Tigers' Zack Short: Back with Detroit
The Shortcode="annotation" data-id="306" data-text="Tigers" data-canon="Detroit Tigers" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_TEAM" data-league-abbreviation="MLB" data-team-abbreviation="DET">Tigers recalled Short from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.
Short has hit .224 with three home runs since being optioned to Toledo on Sept. 3. He now fills the big-league roster spot of Victor Reyes (groin) and figures to serve as infield depth for the remainder of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Zack Short: Optioned to Triple-A
Short was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Friday.
Short didn't start any of the last three games, but he should receive more consistent at-bats in the minors. The 26-year-old had slashed just .111/.150/.222 with three home runs, 10 RBI, nine runs and a stolen base in 38 games since the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Zack Short: Starting Sunday
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.... See More ... See Less
