NEW YORK (AP) - David Eckstein has been traded from the Toronto Blue Jays to the Arizona Diamondbacks, giving the NL West leaders a late-season spark plug with impressive October credentials.

The 2006 World Series MVP with St. Louis, Eckstein batted .277 with a homer and 23 RBIs for Toronto. Known for his all-out hustle, the 5-foot-7 infielder also helped the Angels win the 2002 World Series.

The Diamondbacks sent minor league right-hander Chad Beck to the Blue Jays on Sunday for Eckstein, who could help replace injured second baseman Orlando Hudson in Arizona.
