'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.

When Bryce Harper exactly will begin a minor league rehab assignment remains a mystery, even to his manager.

The All-Star outfielder has been sidelined since April 26 and had ligament surgery on his left thumb last month.

Nationals manager Matt Williams expects Harper, Washington's primary left fielder, to play seven games overall with stints at all three outfield spots and DH.

Harper is batting .289 with one home run and nine RBIs in 22 games this season.

Marlins' Furcal injured

Marlins second baseman Rafael Furcal left Saturday's game against the Mets in the fourth inning with a left hamstring cramp and is listed as day-to-day.

Indians' Brantley back

Indians left fielder Michael Brantley returned to the lineup after being sidelined with a concussion. Brantley was injured trying to break up a double play sliding into second base in the third inning Monday against the Angels.

Good news for CarGo

Carlos Gonzalez's left index finger is getting stronger each day. So are his identical twin daughters who were born premature.

The Rockies' All-Star outfielder proudly reported the newest additions to his family are “doing really good” before his team played Milwaukee.

Gonzalez had surgery on June 10 to remove a small tumor in his finger.
