Cabrera, who previously endured a spell on the 10-day disabled list earlier this year with a right groin strain, is now dealing with a Grade 1 oblique strain.
Now, the question is, who will manager Brad Ausmus decide to use a DH for the upcoming series with the Rangers? He'd played in all 38 games for Baltimore this season, hitting.224 with nine home runs.
The worst case scenario for Tigers fans is if the team continues this up and down roller coaster they are on and they begin to fall out of playoff contention in July, then you can bet that the J.D. Martinez trade rumors will heat up.
During Thursday's outing, Martinez went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI. The Tigers are putting up 4.72 runs per game this season while allowing 5 per contest. Wood (4-0, 2.27) has been overpowering of late, striking out 21 over 11 scoreless innings in his past two starts.
Victor Martinez hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the third, and J.D. Martinez added a solo shot that same inning.
Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado missed his first game of the season because of a sore finger. Stretch it out over the entire seven-game road trip, and it was 27 runs allowed in 35 2/3 innings (6.81 ERA).

Detroit made it 6-4 later in the inning on Avila's run-scoring double. "You're always pulling, pulling, pulling.' (Comerica Park) is why I try to pull".
The Tigers announced they'll play a split doubleheader at home July 1 against Cleveland.
Danny Duffy picked up first victory since April 14, and Mike Moustakas belted a three-run homer as Kansas City defeated NY. He was able to stay in the game.
While left-handed hitting Efren Navarro - hitting.305 with 12 extra-base hits - or Alex Presley - hitting.311 in May - might make some sense, given the fact that the Tigers will face three right-handed starters from Texas this weekend, neither is on the 40-man roster at the moment.
