Royals Send Ismael Valdes to Yankees

The Kansas City Royals sent starting pitcher Ismael Valdes to the New York Yankees in exchange for a 2003 3rd round draft pick. Last season, Valdes made 23 starts for the Royals while posting a 9-6 record with a 4.38 ERA. The Yankees have been recently fortifying their starting staff - picking up Andy Ashby as an early round 2002 draft pick and now Valdes to bolster the back end of their rotation.
