MLB-LUXURY TAX

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Dodgers have ended the Yankees' 15-year streak as Major League Baseball's biggest spenders.

The Dodgers finished with a record payroll of $257,283,410, according to final calculations made by Major League Baseball and obtained by The Associated Press. That is more than $20 million above the previous high, set by the Yankees last year.

For the first time since the current luxury tax began in 2003, the Yankees won't be paying the most. The luxury tax was put in place as a slowdown on spending by high-revenue teams, and teams pay based on the amount they are over the $189 million threshold.

The Dodgers have a tax bill of $26,621,125 due to the commissioner's office by Jan. 21.

MLB-TRANSACTIONS

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.

Rollins is a three-time All-Star who 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.

The 20-year old Elflin was 10-7 with a 3.80 ERA this year in 24 starts in Class A ball while the 22-year old Windle went 12-8 with a 4.26 ERA in 25 starts and one relief appearance this year in Class A action.

In other moves;

-- Kansas City has signed veteran outfielder Alex Rios to an $11 million, one-year deal that includes a mutual option for the 2016 season. Rios will take over right field for departed free agent Nori Aoki. The 33-year-old Rios should provide more pop to a lineup that lacked home-run hitters last season. He hit.280 with four homers and 54 RBIs for Texas last season.

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

-- The busy San Diego Padres have agreed to acquire slugger Justin Upton from the Atlanta Braves for a group of prospects, a person with knowledge of the deal has told The Associated Press. The Padres already made two huge trades in recent days, acquiring slugger Matt Kemp from the Dodgers and former AL Rookie of the Year Wil Myers from Tampa Bay. Upton had 29 homers and 102 RBIs last season.

-- 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.

-- The Yankees have acquired pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, outfielder Garrett Jones and minor league pitcher Domingo German from the Miami Marlins on Friday for versatile Martin Prado (mar-TEEN' PRAH'-doh) and pitcher David Phelps. The right-handed Eovaldi throws at up to 98 mph and was 6-14 with a 4.37 ERA last season. Prado was obtained by the Yankees from Arizona at the July trade deadline and hit .316 with seven homers and 16 RBIs in 133 at-bats.

NFL-COWBOYS-MURRAY

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- All signs point to DeMarco Murray playing for Dallas against Indianapolis Sunday despite the NFL rushing leader's broken left hand. Murray was listed as questionable a few hours after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on his radio show that the team "should be able to count on" him playing.

The fourth-year back went through individual drills Wednesday before expanding his role in workouts Thursday and Friday. He says he will ultimately decide whether to play on Sunday.

NFL-PANTHERS

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.

Two last-place clubs are meeting in Philadelphia. The 76ers and visiting Charlotte have combined for just eight wins this season and each team is riding a four-game losing streak.

There are ten games on the schedule tonight.

NBA-TRADE

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 trade gives the Rockets another proven veteran defender in Brewer to compete in the demanding Western Conference, where they were in fourth place at 19-6 after Thursday's games.

NHL-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Red Wings host the Islanders tonight in as part of the five-game NHL schedule. The Islanders have won their last two games despite trailing going into the final period. The start the night four points back of first-place Pittsburgh in the Metropolitan Division. The Red Wings are winless in their last four games and start the night a point back of Tampa Bay for the lead in the Atlantic Division.

ALPINE SKIING

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.
