India has homered twice in camp, once against Amir Garrett and on another occasion against Tyler Mahle, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
India has made a good impression in this summer camp for the Reds, but he's going to require a few injuries to get a chance this season. It's more likely that he'll spend most of 2020 training at Prasco Park, the Reds' alternate training site.
India will be a part of the Reds' 60-man player pool this season.
India's prospect star has faded over the past year, but he will now be eligible to make his MLB debut this season. He is not on the 40-man roster and will not be training with the Reds' best players at Great American Ball Park.
India hit .227/.321/.409 with one homer in 28 spring training plate appearances before he was sent to the Reds' minor-league camp.
India made it to Double-A Chattanooga last season, hitting .270/.414/.378 in 34 games. With Eugenio Suarez locked in at third base for the Reds, there's no clear path for India to play at the big-league level, but as yet his performance hasn't created any urgency to promote him to Cincinnati either.
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 is considered day-to-day after he was hit in the back by a pitch during a game Saturday with High-A Daytona, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Daytona has thus far resisted placing India on its 7-day injured list, with the hope being the third baseman will be ready to return to game action early this week. Through his first 22 games in the Florida State League, India is slashing .262/.340/.440 with four home runs and two stolen bases.
India (wrist) returned to action Saturday and homered for High-A Daytona.
The homer is the second on the season for India, the Reds' first-round pick last season. He's off to a slow start in a tough hitting track, hitting .211 with 12 strikeouts in 38 at-bats.
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 has gone 5-for-25 with a home run and nine strikeouts through his first six games at High-A Daytona.
India wasn't overly dominant in his initial exposure to full-season ball late in 2018 at Low-A Dayton (.229/.339/.396 batting line, 114 wRC+), but the Reds saw enough to move him up to the Florida State League to begin 2019. The third baseman will need to cut down on his strikeouts against more advanced pitching to deliver a palatable batting average, but he should remain an above-average source of power even if the early contact issues persist.
India was moved up to Low-A Dayton on Monday.
India is on the move once again, just days after being called up to Rookie-league Billings in the Pioneer League. Across 17 professional games, he's gone 14-for-54 (.259 average) with six extra-base hits, 12 RBI and one stolen base.
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.
