UNDATED (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have added some pop to the line-up by agreeing with first baseman Adam LaRoche to a two-year, $25 million contract. LaRoche gives Chicago sorely needed power from the left side. He hit .259 with 26 homers and 92 RBIs in 140 games this year for NL East champion Washington.

He's likely to be used as a designated hitter, because Jose Abreu (ah-BRAY'-oo) is firmly entrenched at first after his rookie-of-the-year season.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox clean up some contract issues by finalizing their five-year deal with Pablo Sandoval. The third baseman gets a $3 million signing bonus payable by Jan. 15, $17 million in each of the first three seasons and $18 million apiece in 2018 and `19. Boston has a $17 million option for 2020 with a $5 million buyout.

At a news conference in Boston, Sandoval indicated he needed a new challenge and that's why he left the World Series champ Giants.

The Red Sox also agreed to a deal with Hanley Ramirez, a baseball official with knowledge of that agreement said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because Ramirez hadn't yet passed a physical.


ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- Detroit center Dominic Raiola says he hasn't been fined by the NFL for his cut block during a kneel-down at the end of the Lions' loss to New England on Sunday.

Raiola says he didn't intentionally try to hurt anybody or try to do anything out of the ordinary, and he "would have gotten a FedEx letter" if he had. Raiola spoke with reporters Tuesday but tried to keep the focus on Thursday's game against Chicago.

The Patriots scored a late touchdown in their 34-9 win over Detroit. Raiola later told the Detroit Free Press he took the action after the Patriots went for a late game touchdown in the one-sided win intead of running out the clock.


NEW YORK (AP) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') and players' union chief DeMaurice (deh-MOR'-his) Smith are meeting to discuss the league's personal conduct policy.

The NFL Players Association has been unhappy with what it calls "lack of transparency" in the policy. Smith has said the only way to have a fair policy is if the NFL and owners "commit to collective bargaining."

The NFL counters that the union agreed to the policy during labor negotiations to end the 2011 lockout. That collective bargaining agreement runs through 2021.


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin will miss the next six to eight weeks after having surgery on his fractured right wrist.

He suffered the injury in a game against the New York Knicks last week.

Martin is averaging 20.4 points per game and is shooting 48 percent on 3-pointers this season. His loss is a big one for the rebuilding Timberwolves, who are also without point guard Ricky Rubio, center Nikola Pekovic and backup big man Ronny Turiaf because of injuries.
