CLEVELAND (AP) -- Dave Roberts has been introduced as the new manager of the Dodgers, saying he's eager to get to work for the team that hasn't won the World Series since 1988.

Roberts formerly played with the Dodgers and is the first minority manager in franchise history. The 43-year-old replaces Don Mattingly, who left the team after the season and signed to manage Miami.

Former Dodger great Don Newcombe collapsed at Roberts' news conference and was taken to the hospital. There was no immediate word on the 89-year old's condition.

In other baseball news:

-- The Twins have signed first baseman Byung Ho Park to a four-year, $12 million contract. Minnesota won the right to negotiate with the South Korean star by bidding $12.85 million dollars under Major League Baseball's agreement with the Korean Baseball Organization. Park hit .343 with 53 homers and 146 RBIs last season. He's a career .281 hitter with 210 homers.

--Free agent relief pitcher Joba (JAH'-buh) Chamberlain has signed a minor league contract with Cleveland. The deal includes an invitation to join the team in spring training. Chamberlain spent last season with Detroit, Toronto and Kansas City. The 30-year-old has a 25-21 career record with a 3.87 ERA and seven saves over nine seasons.


UNDATED (AP) -- Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (RAWTH'-lihs-bur-gur) has a concussion. Roethlisberger says it was just a migraine. Regardless, he'll remain under the concussion protocol this week as the Steelers prepare to face Indianapolis. Roethlisberger removed himself from Sunday's loss to Seattle after being banged up, but says his headache cleared up in 30 minutes.

In other injury news:

-- Arizona has placed running back Chris Johnson on the injured reserve/designated to return list. The move means the only way he'll play again this season is if the Cardinals reach the Super Bowl. A person with knowledge of the situation says that Johnson chipped or fractured his tibia where it meets his left knee. Coach Bruce Arians says Johnson was hurt in Sunday's win over the 49ers when he took a helmet to the knee.

-- Browns starting quarterback Josh McCown is done for the season with a broken collarbone sustained in last night's loss to the Ravens.

-- Receiver Terrelle (teh-REHL') Pryor has agreed to sign with the Browns according to a person familiar with the decision. Pryor was in Cleveland's training camp but was limited by a nagging hamstring injury and was one of the last players cut.


NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL has moved referee Pete Morelli's crew off the upcoming Sunday night game between Indianapolis and Pittsburgh.

The crew will work an afternoon game between the Eagles and Patriots instead.

Morelli's group was heavily criticized by both sides after the 49ers-Cardinals game Sunday. Arizona coach Bruce Arians said the officials "can't count to three" after the Cardinals win.


UNDATED (AP) -- Tonight's Lakers at Philadelphia game features the two worst teams in the NBA. And it's a sellout.

The game will be the last in Philadelphia for native son Kobe Bryant. Drafted straight from high school by the Lakers in 1996, Bryant has announced his retirement at the end of the current season. The Lakers enter the game with a record of 2-14 while the Sixers are winless in 18 games this season and in their last 28 games overall.

Cleveland looks to remain unbeaten at home with a game against Washington. The 13-4 Cavaliers have won all nine games at Quickens Loan Arena. All that despite the fact several starters remain on the bench nursing injuries.

Anthony Davis leads New Orleans into Memphis tonight. The Pelicans center is playing in the NBA just like people expected he would when he left the Kentucky early. Davis is the Pelicans key man with 23.9 points a game along with 10.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks.

The remaining games tonight feature the Suns in New York to face the Nets and Dallas at Portland.


UNDATED (AP) -- Montreal tops the NHL with 39 points and tonight is home to Columbus. The Canadiens face the prospect of now playing the next four to six weeks without All-Star goalie Carey Price who is out with a lower body injury. The Blue Jackets are welcoming back center Brandon Dubinsky who missed the last game after being suspended for delivering a cross-check to the head of a Pittsburgh player.

Dallas heads into tonight's road game in Calgary with the best road record in the league. The Stars have won 10 of 12 road games.

The Kings have won five of their last eight games heading into their home game against Vancouver.

Minnesota has dropped three straight and six of seven going into their road game in Chicago.

An eastern road trip continues for Colorado tonight. The Avalanche lost last night to the Islanders in New York and this evening they are playing at New Jersey.

The remaining games feature the Flyers in Ottawa, the Red Wings home to Buffalo, the Panthers at St. Louis, Nashville home to Arizona and Pittsburgh at San Jose in the first of four games in the west for the Pens.
