he's made 12 starts in his career but 10 at DH and only 2 at another position (1B)

if he gets 10 games played or 5 starts at a position, he will gain specific eligibility

So, by next Saturday, this should happen - of course if he sees majority of starts. I don't forsee them moving Inge into a catching roll or sharing time.

Who's the backup 1B/C in this situation for Detroit? I mean, Shelton should be their prime time first basemen now, correct?

I'm just not sure of this guy though. Do you really want someone on your team named ‘Shelton’? ;-)

This has been discussed here:

http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... p?t=133809

Shelton is not and will not play C for DET. Neither will Inge. Shelton played 6 games @ C in 2004, so if thats enough for him to qualify @ C in your league, then so be it - otherwise dont expect that to change now.

He will play 1B enough times to qualify there shortly. Shelton and DY will platoon between 1B and DH for the immediate future.

I know we discussed it before, Cornbread, but I must mention that 1B is pretty crowded with Dimitri. In other words, Shelton is probably a platoon option at best. So, be prepared.

[edit: Sorry, just realized you said the same thing in your last sentence!!!]
