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.

Mesoraco Staying a Red

  CINCINNATI (AP) - All-Star catcher Devin Mesoraco has agreed to a $28 million, four-year contract with Cincinnati, leaving the Reds with two players in salary arbitration.
   He gets a $500,000 signing bonus under Monday's deal and salaries of $2.4 million this year, $4.9 million in 2016, $7.2 million in 2017 and $13 million in 2018. The salary in the final year can escalate to $15 million.
   Mesoraco made $525,000 last season, when he took over as the starter and led all major league catchers in homers (25) and RBIs (80) while batting .273. His 24 homers while catching were the most by a Reds player since Johnny Bench din 1977.
   Mesoraco had asked for $3.6 million in arbitration and the club had offered $2.45 million.
   Third baseman Todd Frazier and closer Aroldis Chapman - also All-Stars last season - remain in arbitration. Frazier is seeking $5.7 million and Chapman has asked for $8.7 million. The Reds haven't had a player go to a hearing since 2004.

Bobrovsky to Miss Significant Time

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 21 and said the former Vezina Trophy winner will be out the next four to six weeks with a groin injury.
   The club also recalled forward Josh Anderson and added goaltender Anton Forsberg to the roster on emergency recall from its American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts.
   Bobrovsky was selected to play in his first NHL All-Star game prior to the injury. He has a 16-15-2 record with a 2.85 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and one shutout in 33 games this season.
   Anderson has not recorded a point in four games this season. Forsberg, who has appeared in two games for Columbus this season, will back up Curtis McElhinney.
