'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.

Rays owner Stuart Sternberg said he doesn't regret trading former Cy Young Award winner David Price to the Tigers.

Price, 28, can be a free agent after next season and could command a bigger contract than Tampa Bay would be able to give.

“With David it wasn't three, four, five, eight guys, and I think people got that and understood that we're still in it to win it,” Sternberg said. “It really was the classic one-eye-on-the-present, one-eye-on-the-future kind of deal.”

Hanley has MRI on ribs

Los Angeles shortstop Hanley Ramirez had an MRI on his sore right rib cage and missed the Dodgers' game Saturday against the Brewers. Ramirez is batting .277 with 12 home runs and 58 RBIs in 100 games this season.

Parker joins Reds' Hall

Former Pirates outfielder Dave Parker, Ken Griffey Jr. and Ron Oester — all of whom grew up playing baseball in Cincinnati — were honored on the field Saturday before a game against the Marlins. They'll be formally inducted Sunday.

Yankees make moves

The Yankees placed catcher Brian McCann on the seven-day concussion list less than a day after he was hit in the facemask by a foul ball.

Also, the Yankees gave second baseman Brian Roberts his unconditional release. Roberts was hitting .237 with five homers when he was cut Aug. 1.
