2024 Fantasy Outlook
Short played in a career-high 112 games for Detroit last year, but he was let go early in the offseason after he posted a .204/.292/.339 slash line with seven homers and five steals. The Mets claimed him off waivers, and he should compete for a utility bench spot in 2024. Read Past Outlooks

Seeing little playing time
2BAtlanta Braves
July 14, 2024
Short is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.
ANALYSIS
Short picked up three consecutive starts at shortstop to begin July, but he hasn't returned to the lineup since with Orlando Arcia returning to action July 5 and avoiding a stint on the injured list due to an abscessed tooth. Expect Short's starting opportunities to be few and far between while Atlanta is at full strength in the infield.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Playing all over
2BDetroit Tigers
August 24, 2022
Short is expected to play three infield positions and the outfield for Detroit, reports Evan Woodbery of MLive.com.
ANALYSIS
Short hit ninth and played second Tuesday in his return to Detroit from the minors. The 27-year-old made starts at five different positions for Triple-A Toledo this season and is expected to play all over the diamond for the Tigers. The utilityman hit .231/.355/.398 with 11 homers and 11 stolen bases in 102 games for the Mud Hens this season. He made his big-league debut last year for the Tigers, and after a strong start, hit just .106/.185/.235 with 47 strikeouts over his final 151 plate appearances. With Jonathan Schoop out with an ankle injury, Short may get some regular playing time and the chance to prove he can hit in the majors.
