A-Rod to endure PED investigation

NEW YORK - Alex Rodriguez was ensnared in a doping investigation once again Tuesday.

An alternative weekly newspaper in Miami reports baseball's highest-paid star was among a half-dozen players listed in records of a Florida clinic the paper said sold performance-enhancing drugs.

The Miami New Times reports the three-time AL MVP bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances during 2009-12 from Biogenesis of America, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, Fla., near Rodriguez's offseason home.

The newspaper said it obtained records detailing purchases by Rodriguez, 2012 All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera, 2005 AL Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon and 2011 AL championship series MVP Nelson Cruz.

Snowmobiler in critical condition

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Snowmobile rider Caleb Moore remains in critical condition after a crash at the Winter X Games in Aspen.

The 25-year-old was performing a flip Thursday when he clipped the top of a jump and went over the handlebars. The snowmobile rolled over him, but he walked off the course with help and went to a hospital with a concussion.

While there, he developed bleeding around his heart and was flown to Grand Junction for surgery Friday. His family said Sunday that Moore then had a secondary complication involving his brain. They didn't provide details.

Roles stay same without Rondo

WALTHAM, Mass.- Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says he's not expecting his team to play point guard by committee.

The Celtics are trying to figure out how to replace point guard Rajon Rondo, who tore his ACL and will miss the rest of the season. Rivers says different players will bring the ball up, but little else will change.

Celtics players say they're going to have to be more active now that the ball isn't in Rondo's hands most of the time.

Vautier joins Schmidt's team

INDIANPOLIS, Ind.- Indy Lights champion Tristan Vautier is stepping up to the IndyCar Series with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.

The signing announced Tuesday makes Sam Schmidt's organization a two-car IndyCar Series team. Vautier will team with Simon Pagenaud, last year's IndyCar rookie of the year.

Vautier won his debut race in Indy Lights last season en route to the championship, and did the same in the Star Mazda Series in 2011.

Clarke will play despite accident

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - The manager of Darren Clarke says the 2011 British Open champion will play as scheduled in India next week, despite being injured in a minor car accident.

Andrew Chandler says Clarke suffered a stiff neck and "just needed to rest this week." Clarke was a passenger in the car involved in the accident last week. Chandler didn't provide other details.

Clarke will be one of 24 players taking part in next week's inaugural Pearl Golf Premier League.
