The Pirates sent Mark Redman to the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday for minor league reliever Jonah Bayliss and a player to be named.

With the emergence of rookie left-handers Zach Duke and Paul Maholm and the expected return of Oliver Perez and Sean Burnett to good health, Pittsburgh could afford to deal Williams and Redman. Williams was sent to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday for first baseman Sean Casey.

Redman was a disappointment this past season after being acquired in a trade from Oakland involving catcher Jason Kendall. The 31-year-old was 5-15 with a 4.90 ERA. He is in the last year of his contract that calls for about $4 million in 2006.

A 24-year-old left-hander, Bayliss was 1-2 with eight saves and a 2.84 ERA for Class AA Wichita in the Texas League last season.
