'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.

Thursday, May 31, 2012, 7:02 p.m.
 

The Pirates on Thursday requested waivers to give outfielder Nate McLouth his unconditional release. Unless another team takes him, he will become an unrestricted free agent.

McLouth was batting .140 (8 for 57) with two RBI in 34 games during his second stint with the Pirates when he was designated for assignment last week.

The Pirates drafted him in the 25th round in 2000, and he played for the team from 2005-09, when he was traded to the Atlanta Braves for right-hander Charlie Morton, lefty Jeff Locke and outfielder Gorkys Hernandez. He signed with the Pirates as a free agent Dec. 7.
