India received an invitation to big-league camp from the Reds on Friday. India isn't too far from the big leagues but likely won't be in consideration for a spot on the Opening Day roster. He's yet to reach Triple-A and has played just 34 games for Double-A Chattanooga, hitting .270/.414/.378.
India was promoted to Double-A Chattanooga on Monday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. India earns the promotion after hitting .256/.346/.410 in 87 games for High-A Daytona, good for a 125 wRC+. He added eight homers and seven steals. A big-league debut sometime in 2020 remains a possibility for the 2018 fifth-overall pick should his progress continue.
India (back) is back in the lineup Tuesday for High-A Daytona, Daytona Tortugas announcer Justin Rocke reports. India was hit in the back by a pitch Saturday and was considered day-to-day, but he'll be able to avoid a trip to the injured list. The third-base prospect is hitting .262/.340/.440 with four homers in 22 games for Daytona this season.
India left the game after being struck in the wrist by a pitch during Friday's minor-league action, Justin Rocke reports. India didn't immediately exit the contest, as he managed to swipe second base before being lifted. He'll be considered day-to-day until the details surrounding his injury are unveiled.
India, the Reds' first-round pick and No. 5 overall selection in this year's draft, was promoted from Greeneville of the Appalachian League to Billings of the Pioneer League. The Reds just added their Greeneville affiliate and India graduated from it quickly, as expected, hitting .261/.452/.543 in 14 games there.
