  • Braves' Zack Short: Returns to reserve role

    Short remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

    Short is on the bench for the third game in a row and has settled into a full-time reserve role after Austin Riley put an end to his to his two-week absence Monday. While Riley missed 13 consecutive games with a left intercostal strain, Short picked up 12 starts at third base during that stretch, with Luke Williams getting the other nod.

  • Braves' Zack Short: Retreats to bench Thursday

    Short is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs.

    Austin Riley (side) remains out of the lineup for a 10th consecutive game, but after starting each of the previous nine games in Riley's stead, Short will give way to Luke Williams at third base Thursday. Atlanta is still seemingly viewing Riley as day-to-day, so Short's run of regular playing time at the hot corner could come to an end as soon as this weekend in Pittsburgh.

  • Braves' Zack Short: Filling in for injured Riley

    Short will start at third base and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

    Short will draw a ninth consecutive start at the hot corner while Austin Riley (side) remains day-to-day. The 28-year-old has delivered a solid .345 on-base percentage over his prior eight starts, but he's provided little fantasy value with a .208 average, zero home runs or stolen bases and two RBI and runs during that stretch. He'll fall back into a light role once Riley is cleared to return to the lineup.

  • Braves' Zack Short: Headed to Atlanta

    Atlanta acquired Short from the Red Sox on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations.

    He will slide right into the role fellow utility infielder Luis Guillorme vacated after being traded to the Angels earlier Thursday. Short, who will turn 29 later this month, is a career .169/.262/.299 hitter over parts of four major-league seasons and has managed just one base hit through 19 plate appearances in 2024 between his time with the Mets and Red Sox.

  • Red Sox's Zack Short: DFA imminent

    The Red Sox will designate Short for assignment on Wednesday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    Short will be kicked off the 40-man roster just a week after Boston acquired him from New York. The 28-year-old played in just two games for the Red Sox, going 0-for-7 with four strikeouts. Romy Gonzalez (wrist) will be reinstated from the IL to take Short's spot on the active roster.

  • Red Sox's Zack Short: Removed from 40-man roster

    The Red Sox designated Short for assignment Wednesday.

    Short has been swapped off the 26-man active roster in favor of utility man Romy Gonzalez (wrist), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list. He'll also lose his spot on the 40-man roster, as Short had no minor-league options remaining and will thus have to be subjected to the waiver process before potentially heading to the Red Sox's top affiliate in Worcester. Short played in just two games for the Red Sox, going 0-for-7 with four strikeouts.

  • Red Sox's Zack Short: Shipped to Boston

    The Red Sox acquired Short from the Mets on Wednesday in exchange for cash considerations.

    Short had been designated for assignment but has now found a new home. The utility infielder is out of minor-league options, so he will join the Red Sox's 26-man active roster.

  • Mets' Zack Short: Removed from 40-man roster

    Short was designated for assignment by the Mets on Friday.

    Short is clearing out as J.D. Martinez is added to the Mets' active roster. The 28-year-old utility player had received just 12 plate appearances this month with the big club, picking up one hit. It's possible he'll draw some interest from a team seeking defensive versatility.

  • Mets' Zack Short: One walk, one run in win

    Short went 0-for-3 with one run and one walk in the 9-1 win over the Pirates on Wednesday.

    With Brett Baty out due to a hamstring injury, Short got just his second start since April. The utility infielder's defensive versatility earned him a 26-man roster spot, and he's at least not a liability as a runner in the event he's able to get on base. Don't expect the 28-year-old to see much more than a spot start on occasion unless multiple members of the Mets' infield pick up injuries.

  • Mets' Zack Short: Makes Opening Day roster

    Short will begin the season on the Mets' 26-man roster, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The 28-year-old infielder has a strong spring at the plate, batting .308 (12-for-39) with a homer, three steals and more walks (seven) than strikeouts (six). Short offers defensive versatility to the Mets' bench, seeing action in more than 30 games at second base, third base and shortstop for the Tigers in 2023, but his most significant role to begin the current campaign is likely to come at the hot corner as a platoon partner for Brett Baty. Short's career .575 OPS over 450 plate appearances in the majors doesn't suggest he'll have much fantasy value, but he has flashed some modest power and speed in the minors.

  • Mets' Zack Short: Claimed by Mets

    The Mets claimed Short off waivers from the Tigers on Monday.

    Short, 28, is a career .174/.266/.308 hitter over 450 plate appearances in parts of three seasons at the big-league level. He has experience at shortstop, second base, third base and a little in the outfield. Short will compete for a utility job in spring training.

  • Tigers' Zack Short: Productive in win

    Short went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run, two walks and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Angels.

    Short had gone 0-for-11 across his previous seven games, though he had a steal in that span. The infielder made his impact early Saturday, with his homer coming in the second inning. He's up to a career-high seven long balls while adding 33 RBI, 16 runs scored, five steals, nine doubles and a .215/.299/.361 slash line over 234 plate appearances in a part-time role.

  • Tigers' Zack Short: Starting at shortstop

    Short (forearm) will bat ninth and play shortstop Saturday against the White Sox.

    Short hadn't seen the field since getting hit by a pitch Wednesday against the Yankees, though he doesn't have an everyday role at the moment, so his absence may not have been injury-related. He hasn't done much to stake a claim for more at-bats down the stretch, posting a .442 OPS in the last month and a .645 OPS on the year.

  • Tigers' Zack Short: Gets X-rays on forearm

    Short received X-rays on his right forearm/wrist after getting hit by a pitch during Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Short indicated that he was feeling fine after Wednesday's contest, so the X-rays were likely precautionary. More details on his status will be provided ahead of Thursday's series finale. Fantasy managers should consider Short day-to-day.

  • Tigers' Zack Short: Belts solo homer

    Short went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's extra-inning win over the Yankees.

    Short put up the first run of the contest in the fifth inning, swatting a solo shot to left field off Clarke Schmidt. The shortstop hit three long balls over his first 29 at-bats this season but has gone deep just three times across 76 at-bats since. Short had been struggling prior to Thursday, going 2-for-23 with no RBI over his previous 14 games while working mostly in a bench role.

  • Tigers' Zack Short: Drives in three off bench

    Short went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Pirates. He also stole a base.

    Short didn't enter the contest until the fourth inning, when he pinch hit for Akil Baddoo. He wasted no time making an impact, driving in two on a single in his first at-bat. Short still profiles as more of a utility player at this point who can't be counted on for a consistent fantasy impact, which is reflected in his .673 OPS across 72 games.

  • Tigers' Zack Short: Goes deep in win

    Short hit a two-run home run in his only at-bat during Monday's 5-1 win over the Giants.

    Short entered the game in the top of the eighth inning, taking over at third base for Nick Maton. He then went deep in the bottom half of the frame, giving him five home runs this season. That's only one away from his career high, and Short reached a career high in RBI with 22. The infielder had six home runs and 20 RBI across 61 games back in 2021, then appeared in just six games for the Tigers last year.

  • Tigers' Zack Short: Enters lineup Sunday

    Short is starting at second base and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Mariners.

    Short will make his first start after the All-Star break, with Zach McKinstry moving over to left field and Nick Maton starting at third base. The Tigers seem to have Spencer Torkelson and Javier Baez locked in at first and shortstop, respectively, but the other two infield positions are a bit more fluid. Short profiles more as a bench option, though he has a chance to see extended run at second if he heats up at the plate. He's batting just .211, however, and hasn't proven to be a dynamic offensive player to this point in his MLB career.

  • Tigers' Zack Short: Retreats to bench

    Short is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Short had started in four of the Tigers' previous five games, but he's unlikely to stick around as a regular in the lineup with Detroit recently welcoming two everyday players in Riley Greene and Akil Baddoo back from the injured list. Second base likely represents Short's most realistic path to playing time, but Andy Ibanez appears to be the Tigers' preferred option at the position at the moment.
