PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Looking for a top starter to bolster their so-so rotation, the Philadelphia Phillies acquired reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Cliff Lee from the Indians.

The defending World Series champions are sending Cleveland four minor league prospects for Lee and outfielder Ben Francisco, a baseball official familiar with the trade told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The deal is pending medical reviews. Those reviews could take a while because three of the players the Indians are getting from Philadelphia have dealt with recent injuries.
