  • Pete Rose is in tax trouble again, and baseball's security department is investigating the career hits leader as he negotiates a possible end to his lifetime ban. Baseball commissioner Bud Selig's position on the talks -- and Rose's eligibility for the Hall of Fame -- could be affected by the tax revelations, a high-ranking baseball official said Friday on condition of anonymity. Rose, who served a five-month prison sentence a decade ago on tax charges, owes $151,689 in federal taxes from 1998, according to the Los Angeles County Recorder's Office.


  • Vince Carter will return to the struggling Raptors on Sunday after missing 23 games with a strained right knee. Carter received medical clearance to play following an evaluation from team doctor Dr. Doug Richards.


  • Rams defensive end Leonard Little has been charged with communicating threats and making harassing calls, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said. Little, 28, was arrested Sunday in Charlotte and released Tuesday after posting bond of $2,000, according to police.


  • First-round leader Harrison Frazar remained in good position to get his first PGA Tour victory when he birdied the next-to-last hole Friday to share with Tom Petrovic the second-round lead in the Phoenix Open. Petrovic, also looking for his first title, shot a career-low, 8-under-par 63 that left him at 13-under 129. But Frazar, a late starter on the back nine, rolled a 12-foot birdie putt into the center of the cup on No. 8, a 470-yard par-4, and caught up with a 67.


  • Flames coach Darryl Sutter headed for the hospital for a CAT scan Friday after running his team's practice for just 10 minutes, TSN of Canada reported. Calgary lost Sutter halfway through the first period of Thursday's 7-1 loss to Phoenix when a wayward puck deflected over the boards and hit Sutter in the face.
