Do you already have the shimano shifter? or are you basing this on the fact you have a shimano cassette, which doesn't really matter. I run a SRAM X9 short cage RD with a SRAM X7 trigger shifter, 11-34 cassette and a 32t ring on my 1x9 and it works well. The short cage is nice because it gives you a bit more rear clearance and a lot less chainslap.
