Before last night’s loss to the White Sox, the Kansas City Royals made a deal with the Philadelphia Phillies. The Royals pick-up righthander Paul Byrd in exchange for reliever Jose Santiago. Byrd was a 1999 All-Star in Philly, but he was coming back from shoulder problems this year. He has made only three Major League appearances in 2001. He is expected to join the Royals starting rotation.
