‘Raising’ Arizona: Ashley Eckstein (and Husband) Traded to Diamondbacks
The Toronto Blue Jays have traded shortstop David Eckstein to the Arizona Diamondbacks for minor league pitcher Chad Beck.
In more important news? Actress and 2008 Hot Baseball Wife Finalist Ashley Eckstein is on her way to the Grand Canyon State! The actress, who’s voice recently starred in Star Wars: The Clone Wars was boarding a flight to Toronto when her husband called her and told her to get on a different flight… to Phoenix.
Eckstein would be a fantasy baseball stud if stats in the postseason counted. The 2006 World Series MVP has been dealt to Dbacks primarily for his postseason success. This season, Eckstein hit .277 with 1 homerun, 23 RBI, 27 runs scored and 2 steals with the Blue Jays, but he recently had been demoted to a co-op with the Jays.
With the playoffs upon most of the fantasy baseball world, there is no reason why you should consider adding Ecks at this time. But for our readers in Arizona, we hope they know how valuable having Eckstein on the Dbacks roster is – because they get Ashley in the deal.
