Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Held out of Friday's contest

Cabrera (oblique) is not in the lineup Friday against the Rangers.

This marks the third day in a row that the star slugger will miss due to an oblique strain, which aligns with the original two-to-three day timetable offered by the team. Cabrera could return for Saturday's contest, but Alex Avila will fill in at first base for the time being.
