SEATTLE - The Philadelphia Phillies now have Roy Halladay and the Seattle Mariners have Cliff Lee. The Cy Young winners switched teams Wednesday when a complicated, four-team trade was completed.

As part of the deal, Halladay agreed to a $60 million, three-year contract extension through 2013. Toronto sent Halladay and $6 million to the Phillies for three minor leaguers: catcher Travis d'Arnaud, right-hander Kyle Drabek and outfielder Michael Taylor.

Philadelphia dealt Lee to Seattle for three prospects: right-hander Phillippe Aumont, outfielder Tyson Gillies and right-hander Juan Ramirez.

Toronto flipped Taylor to the Athletics for third baseman Brett Wallace.
