Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Maholm a Starter?

 GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Left-hander Paul Maholm is getting a chance to help the Cincinnati Reds piece together their depleted starting rotation.
 
   The Reds signed Maholm to a minor league deal and invited him to training camp to see whether he could be a starter again after spending much of last season in the Dodgers bullpen. Cincinnati traded two starters in the offseason and Homer Bailey isn't expected to be fully recovered from forearm surgery when the season opens.
 
   Several young pitchers have the inside track on the three openings, but Maholm and Jason Marquis were brought to camp as options. Marquis will start Cincinnati's spring training opener on Tuesday against Cleveland in Goodyear.
 
   First baseman Joey Votto isn't expected to play for Cincinnati. He's recovering from a leg injury last year.

King's Ransom: Harden Suspended

   NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA has suspended Houston star James Harden one game without pay for kicking LeBron James in the groin.
 
   The All-Stars and Olympic teammates became tangled in the third quarter of Houston's 105-103 victory over Cleveland on Sunday and Harden fell back to the court, then kicked his foot up into James.
 
   Harden was given a flagrant foul 1 for the play, which the league upgraded Monday to a flagrant 2, which would have been an automatic ejection if called at the time.
 
   An angry James said after the game that Harden's kick was "not a basketball play" and that the league would probably look at it.
 
   Harden, the NBA's leading scorer and a top MVP candidate, won't play when the Rockets visit the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.
