'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

• Yankees captain Derek Jeter will be sidelined until after the All-Star break because of a new fracture in his injured left ankle. He played sparingly in spring training and started the season rehabbing at the team's minor league complex in Tampa, Fla. After three straight days of workouts, the 38-year-old shortstop went to Charlotte, N.C., and was examined. “This is obviously a setback,” said Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, who added Jeter will not require surgery for the new break.

• Boston designated hitter David Ortiz is expected to return to the Red Sox's lineup when they open a home series Friday against Kansas City.

• Padres president and CEO Tom Garfinkel apologized to the Dodgers for comments he made aboutZack Greinke the day after the pitcher's left collarbone was broken in a brawl, including referencing the right-hander's social-anxiety disorder.

• Phillies lefthander John Lannan could miss six to eight weeks with a strained left quadriceps tendon in his knee.

• The Marlins put shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria on the 15-day disabled list with a sore throwing arm.

• The Astros optioned infielder Brett Wallace to Triple-A Oklahoma City and called up infielder Brandon Laird from the RedHawks.

• Mets minor league catcher Travis d'Arnaud, a key piece in the offseason trade that sent NL Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey to Toronto, broke his left foot and is returning to New York for examination.
