KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Royals' blockbuster trade with Tampa Bay for James Shields and Wade Davis shows that they're ready to start mortgaging their future to win in the present, something that hasn't happened around Kansas City for years.

To do it, the Royals gave up outfielder Wil Myers, widely regarded as the top prospect in the minor leagues, and right-hander Jake Odorizzi, considered their top pitching prospect. They also sent left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard to the Rays for another player to be named or cash considerations.

Shields is a former All-Star who immediately slides into the top spot in the rotation. Davis will also join the rotation after spending last season in the Tampa Bay bullpen.
