Texas Rangers vs Detroit Tigers
DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez will be absent from the Detroit Tigers' lineup when the team opens a three-game series against the red-hot Texas Rangers on Friday at Comerica Park.
Cabrera, the No. 3 hitter in the lineup, is dealing with a Grade 1 oblique strain that has prevented him from playing the past two games. The first baseman is expected to miss at least one more game.
