(Sports Network) - Anaheim Angels shortstop David Eckstein won his arbitration case Thursday and will receive a salary increase of nearly $2 million.

Eckstein made $425,000 last season and will receive a bump in pay to $2.15 million. Anaheim had offered $1.6 million.

In 120 games for the club last season, the 29-year-old Eckstein batted .252 with three homers, 31 RBI, 16 stolen bases and 22 doubles.

A three-year veteran, he had his best season in 2002 when the Angels won their first-ever World Series. In 152 games that season, Eckstein posted career- bests in average (.293), home runs (8) and RBI (63).

Over 425 career games, Eckstein has batted .279 with a .984 fielding percentage at second base and shortstop.
