'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.

BRADENTON, Fla. — Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez sat out today's spring training workouts due to neck spasms.

General manager Neal Huntington did not specify how and when Alvarez was injured.

"He woke up this morning with a sore neck," Huntington said. "He's day to day."

Left-hander Scott Olsen threw long toss this morning on Field 4 at Pirate City. Olsen, who's expected to compete for the fifth starter job, has been out since last week with a strained left hamstring.

"We're still working through it on a daily basis," Huntington said. "We'll let you know in a couple of days where he is (physically)."
