'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.

• Major League Baseball will bolster its policies against harassment and discrimination based on sexual orientation, according to a new agreement provided to the Associated Press on Monday. The league is scheduled to announce its new policy during its All-Star game festivities Tuesday. Under the new policy, the league will create a workplace code of conduct and distribute it to every major league and minor league player. It also will provide new training sessions and create a centralized complaint system to report any harassment and discrimination.

• Baseball commissioner Bud Selig declined to detail timing for decisions on the sport's investigation of the closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis, accused of distributing performing-enhancing drugs. MLB could attempt to discipline former MVPs Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun along with other players.

• The Phillies' Ben Revere will have surgery Tuesday on his broken right foot and is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

Jordany Valdespin tried to sidestep his demotion Saturday by imploring the Mets to put him on the disabled list with a trumped-up injury, a person with knowledge of the situation said.

• The Yankees' Alex Rodriguez went 2 for 4 with a 400-foot home run in his first rehab appearance with Double-A Trenton.

• Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson said he's optimistic he can return later this month as he continues to recover from a broken left pinkie, ESPN New York reported.
