'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.

Brewers shortstop Jean Segura is heading home to the Dominican Republic after the death of his 9-month old son.

The 24-year-old Segura learned his son, Janniel, had died after the Brewers' 7-6 loss to the Cardinals on Friday night.

Segura's mother, who attended the game, told several Brewers' wives.

Ron Roenicke closed the Milwaukee clubhouse to reporters after the game Friday. He kept the clubhouse closed before Saturday's game.

“I didn't know what to say to him other than giving him a hug and telling him we're there for him,” Roenicke said. “He had a tough time.”

Roenicke said that the child had been sick.

Alvarez gets All-Star spot

Miami right-hander Henderson Alvarez will replace Washington's Jordan Zimmermann on the National League's roster for Tuesday's All-Star Game.

Zimmermann left Friday night's start against Philadelphia after 3 13 innings because of a right biceps injury.

Callaspo placed on DL

The Athletics placed infielder Alberto Callaspo on the 15-day disabled list because of a right hamstring strain.

The A's recalled infielder Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento to fill in for Callaspo. Callaspo grabbed his leg and pulled up limping just before crossing first base during the second inning of Oakland's loss at Seattle on Friday.
