Byrd Out For Season - Traded to Kansas City

What a difference a year makes!.....last season, Yankees' pitcher Paul Byrd finished with a league leading 24 wins. This coming 2003 season, Byrd will be out for the season with "Tommy John" surgery to reconstruct the elbow and replace ligaments.

Consequently, in an effort to pare down to the 18 player roster limit, the Bronx Bombers decided to ship off their former 2001 #1 draft pick to the Royals for a 2003 seventh rounder.
