PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Phillies and Dodgers have finalized the trade that sends All-Star shortstop Jimmy Rollins to Los Angeles for pitchers Zach Eflin and Tom Windle. The deal was agreed to last week at the winter meetings.

Rollins, a three-time All-Star, hit .243 last season with 11 homers, 55 RBIs and 28 steals. The 36-year-old had started 14 consecutive openers for the Phillies and helped Philadelphia win the 2008 World Series title.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A person familiar with the negotiations says pitcher Jake Peavy (PEE'-vee) has agreed to a $24 million, two-year contract to stay with the World Series champion San Francisco Giants. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the agreement had not yet been announced.

A 33-year-old right-hander, Peavy helped Boston win the 2013 World Series, was traded to San Francisco on July 26 and won another championship with the Giants this season.

ATLANTA (AP) -- The busy San Diego Padres have agreed to acquire slugger Justin Upton from the Atlanta Braves, a person with knowledge of the deal has told The Associated Press.

Among the players discussed were left-hander Max Fried, shortstop Jace Peterson and third baseman Dustin Peterson.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Rays, Padres and Nationals have finalized an 11-player trade that sent 2013 AL Rookie of the Year Wil Myers from Tampa Bay to San Diego and outfielder Steven Souza Jr. from Washington to the Rays. Overall Tampa Bay acquired five players, San Diego four and Washington two.

CHICAGO (AP) -- Free agent reliever Jason Motte and the Chicago Cubs have finalized a $4.5 million, one-year contract that allows the former St. Louis closer to earn $2.5 million more in performance bonuses. Motte was one of baseball's top closers in 2012, when he had 42 saves in 49 chances and helped St. Louis reach the NL championship series. The right-hander had elbow-ligament replacement surgery in May 2013 and missed the season. He returned last season with the Cards and went 1-0 with a 4.68 earned run average in 29 games.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- First baseman Corey Hart and the Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to a $2.5 million, one-year contract.

The 32-year-old Hart hit .203 with six home runs and 21 RBI in 68 games for the Seattle Mariners in 2014, most of them as a designated hitter.


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Panthers coach Ron Rivera says he's confident quarterback Cam Newton will be able to start Sunday's game against Cleveland. He says he is waiting for final clearance from team physicians before officially naming Newton as his starter.

The fourth-year quarterback suffered two lower back fractures in a two-vehicle accident a week and a half ago.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the agreement tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to trade veteran swingman Corey Brewer to the Houston Rockets for Troy Daniels and two future second-round picks. The person spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because the trade has not been officially announced.


UNDATED (AP) -- Five games are on the NHL schedule this evening and in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the Devils are looking to get back on track.

The Anaheim Ducks have won eight of their last nine games and tonight face the Senators in Ottawa. The Sens are coming off a 2-0-1 road trip.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta is the third member of the team to be diagnosed with mumps. The Penguins issued a statement saying he tested positive for the virus and remains in isolation. Teammates Sidney Crosby and Beau Bennett were diagnosed with mumps in the last week. Crosby missed three games but returned for Thursday night's overtime win against Colorado. Bennett tested positive on Monday and remains out indefinitely with a lower body injury.


UNDATED (AP) -- In college basketball, the third-ranked Arizona Wildcats are back on the court this evening, searching for their 12th win of the season. Playing at home, the team coached by Sean Miller will take on UTEP (YOO'-tehp). The rest of the Top-25 schedule is brief as No. 18 Miami faces Eastern Kentucky and 20th-ranked St. John's is going up against Saint Mary's of California.


VAL GARDENA, Italy (AP) -- American alpine skier Steven Nyman has won the World Cup downhill race on the classic Saslong course in Italy for the third time. His other wins on the course came in 2006 and 2012. For some reason he has never won anywhere else.

The race was originally scheduled for Saturday but was moved up a day amid concerns that warm weather would ruin the course.


CHICAGO (AP) -- Former World Boxing Association heavyweight champion Ernie Terrell (tuh-REHL') has passed away at the age of 75. He won the crown after it has been vacated by Muhammad Ali when he was stripped of his title for refusing to right a WBA-mandated contender when he wanted a rematch with Sonny Liston. Terrell defended the title twice before losing it to Ali, who pummeled him for 15 rounds.

It was during this fight that Ali peppered Terrell with the taunt, "What's my name?" because Terrell had refused to call Ali by his chosen name and not by his given name, Cassius Clay.
