India went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in Friday's loss to the Rockies. He was also caught stealing.
India had been in a bad way at the plate -- he entered this series in a 3-for-37 slide -- but a trip to Coors Field was just what the doctor ordered. He has homered in consecutive games and has raised his slash line from .208/.304/.312 to .235/.320/.412 in the span of two days.
India went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and another run scored during Thursday's loss to the Rockies.
India contributed to a monstrous eight-run rally in the eighth inning by cranking a three-run long ball against Mychal Givens. It was just the second homer of the season for the 24-year-old, who is batting .222/.313/.358 across 28 games.
India is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates.
India will hit the bench for the third time in four games, seemingly signaling that his time as Cincinnati's everyday second baseman may be over. The rookie has been the victim of the Reds' numbers crunch in the outfield, where both Tyler Naquin and Nick Senzel have proven worthy of regular roles. In order to fit the two in the lineup, Naquin will pick up a second straight start in center field, while Senzel -- who had prior experience at second base in the minors -- steps in for India at the keystone once again.
India is not in the starting lineup Monday against the Pirates.
India earned a spot on the Opening Day roster following an impressive spring and hit .476 through his first six major-league games, but he's fallen off a cliff since then. Over his last 18 contests, he's hitting .109/.231/.200. Nick Senzel will move in to second base in his absence, with Tyler Naquin starting in center field, a setup which could become more common moving forward if India can't turn things around at the plate.
India is not in the lineup Friday against Cleveland.
The 24-year-old is 0-for-10 with two walks and six strikeouts over his past six games, and he'll head to the bench Friday. Nick Senzel will take over at second base while Tyler Naquin starts in center field for the Reds. India has cooled off after a hot start to the season and may not have a strong grip on the starting job at the keystone.
India (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list Sunday.
The 24-year-old was placed on the injured list Friday with no official designation, and his quick return indicates he was on the COVID-19 IL for the health and safety protocols. India cleared said protocols and is rejoining the team for Sunday's series finale, though he'll remain out of the lineup with Nick Senzel working at second base.
India was scratched from the lineup ahead of Friday's game against the Cubs for undisclosed reasons and placed on the injured list, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
The Reds have yet to specify the reason for the move. Nick Senzel will start at second base in his absence, with Tyler Naquin entering the lineup in center. Mark Payton was recalled to take India's place on the roster.
India isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
India will take a seat for a second straight game after he went hitless with three strikeouts in his last five at-bats. Kyle Farmer will start at second base and bat eighth.
India is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Dodgers.
He's hitting .130 with one home run and a 15:5 K:BB over his last 15 games. Alex Blandino draws the start at second base and will bat sixth.
India (head) will bat seventh and play second base Monday against the Dodgers.
India was hit in the head by a pitch Sunday against the Cardinals. While he initially remained in the game to run the bases, he was replaced in the next half inning. The Reds called his removal precautionary, however, so it's no surprise to see him remain in the lineup Monday.
India was removed from Sunday's loss to the Cardinals in the bottom of the sixth inning due to an apparent head injury, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
India was hit in the head by a pitch in the top of the sixth inning Sunday. He passed all the tests given to him on the field and initially remained in the game, but Kyle Farmer replaced him at second base in the bottom of the sixth inning. Manager David Bell said that India was removed as a precaution, and the second baseman felt good after the game. It's not yet clear whether India forced to miss any additional time.
India went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Diamondbacks.
The 24-year-old's first career homer tied the game at eight in the bottom of the eighth inning. India went 10-for-21 with 10 RBI in his first six games, but he entered Thursday's game in a 3-for-30 slump. Even after the homer, he's still sitting with a sub-.700 OPS.
India is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
India will sit for the second Sunday in a row, opening up the keystone for Max Schrock. The rookie began his career with a seven-game hit streak, but his productivity has tailed off over the past week and a half. In his last seven starts, India has gone 3-for-23 with three walks, two runs and an RBI.
India is out of the lineup Sunday at Arizona.
The 24-year-old started the first eight games of the season but will head to the bench for Sunday's contest. Kyle Farmer will start at second base in place of India for the series finale.
India went 1-for-2 with three RBI and was also hit by a pitch during Wednesday's 11-4 win over the Pirates.
The rookie infielder brought home a run on a sacrifice fly during the first inning, and he added two more RBI on a two-run single during the fifth inning. India has begun his major-league career on a six-game hit streak and is 10-for-21 with one triple, one double, four runs and 10 RBI.
India went 3-for-4 with a triple, three runs scored and four RBI in Tuesday's 14-1 win over the Pirates.
The bottom of the Reds' order was a wrecking ball Tuesday, as Nick Senzel, India and Tucker Barnhart combined for nine hits, nine runs and seven RBI from the 6-7-8 spots. India has gotten off to a stunning start to his big-league career, going 9-for-19 (.474) with four runs scored and seven RBI through five games.
India went 2-for-4 with a double and a strikeout in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.
The 24-year-old forced his way onto the Opening Day roster with a stellar spring and got the nod at second base in his MLB debut, forcing Mike Moustakas to third and Eugenio Suarez to shortstop. Suarez at short seems doomed to fail, but the Reds appear intent on getting India playing time. The fifth overall pick in 2018 has some speed to go with a little pop, which puts him in the mix as an injury-replacement option in mixed leagues.
India's contract was selected by the Reds on Wednesday.
India is expected to serve as Cincinnati's starting second baseman to begin the regular season with Eugenio Suarez at shortstop and Mike Moustakas at third. The 24-year-old impressed while playing second base at the alternate training site last year and will be in line to make his major-league debut to begin the 2021 campaign. India slashed .313/.441/.604 with three home runs, seven RBI and two stolen bases in 22 spring games this year.
The Reds are moving Eugenio Suarez to shortstop and Mike Moustakas to third base for Tuesday's spring training game against the Rockies, presumably with an eye towards using that alignment in-season. That would allow India to start at second base, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
India got a lot of work at second base during 2020 at the Reds' alternate training camp site, and they were impressed with his work. Presumably the 2018 first-round pick out of Florida is considered a net upgrade over their current alternatives at shortstop. This buys the Reds some time to send Jose Garcia back to the minors to develop further with the bat.
India was officially invited to big-league camp Friday.
India has been getting opportunities in spring games despite technically being at minor-league camp. He's been making the most of them, posting a 1.071 OPS in 20 plate appearances. He's considered close to big-league ready but has no obvious place to play, with Eugenio Suarez at third base and Mike Moustakas blocking second. The invitation indicates the Reds think highly of him, however, so it's possible they find a way to get him onto the 26-man roster.
