  • Jonathan India Returns To Lineup

    Headshot for Jonathan India

    Cincinnati Reds second baseman Jonathan India (leg) returns to the lineup on Tuesday. India was scratched from Monday's game after he suffered a left-leg contusion after he was hit by a ball during warmups. After missing one game, India is set to lead off and play second base as the Reds take on the Milwaukee Brewers and right-hander Joe Ross at home. India is slashing .242/.405/.333 in nine games with three RBI but is still looking for his first home run this season.

  • Jonathan India Scratched Due To Leg Injury

    Headshot for Jonathan India

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds infielder Jonathan India (leg) was scratched from Monday's lineup against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers due to a left-leg contusion that he suffered when he was hit by a ball during batting practice before the game. Manager David Bell initially said that India would serve as the designated hitter and bat leadoff, but the team has decided against that now. Will Benson is now serving as the DH and batting eighth, while Bubba Thompson starts in center field and hits in the nine-hole against Brewers left-hander Aaron Ashby. Outfielder Stuart Fairchild is in right field and hitting leadoff. Fairchild gains some DFS steam on Monday now that he's hitting atop the batting order. For now, fantasy baseball managers should consider India day-to-day and check back on Tuesday to see if he's back in the lineup.

  • Jonathan India Remains In Monday's Lineup

    Headshot for Jonathan India

    Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell said that infielder Jonathan India (undisclosed) remains in the starting lineup on Monday, serving as the designated hitter and batting leadoff, as planned, against Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Aaron Ashby. India suffered an undisclosed injury when he was hit by a ball during batting practice and had to be looked at by a trainer, but apparently it wasn't anything serious since he remains in the lineup. The 27-year-old was set for a utility role for the Reds before the start of the season, but with second-year infielder Matt McLain (oblique) potentially missing most of the year now, India should be a lineup regular in 2024. The former National League Rookie of the Year in 2021 has started off 8-for-33 (.242) with no homers, three RBI and a stolen base in nine games this year and is batting .250 with an RBI in four career at-bats against Ashby.

  • Reds Acquire Santiago Espinal From Blue Jays

    Headshot for Santiago Espinal

    The Cincinnati Reds acquired infielder Santiago Espinal from the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday in exchange for right-hander Chris McElvain. The move comes on the same day that the Reds announced second baseman Matt McLain (shoulder) will open the season on the injured list and could need surgery. Noelvi Marte is also suspended for half the season due to performance-enhancing drugs, so Espinal will give the Reds some more infield insurance in 2024. Jonathan India now figures to start at the keystone with McLain on the sidelines, and the 29-year-old Espinal will back up India. Espinal hasn't been much of a fantasy asset in his four big-league seasons with the Blue Jays, slashing .273/.331/.367 with 11 homers, 99 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 346 games played.

  • Jonathan India To Make Cactus League Debut Friday

    Headshot for Jonathan India

    Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell said that second baseman Jonathan India (foot) is on track to make his spring training debut on Friday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. India dealt with plantar fasciitis in his left foot last year and was still bothered by it at the start of spring training, so the Reds have been slow-playing him in hopes that he'll be feeling better by Opening Day on March 28. The 27-year-old's fantasy stock heading into 2024 was already down due to the fact that the Reds plan to use Matt McLain as their primary second baseman, assuming he's healthy. It means that India is going to have to bounce around on the infield and in the outfield in order to find consistent playing time in what is now a pretty stacked Reds roster of position players. The former National League Rookie of the Year isn't guaranteed regular playing time this year.

  • Jonathan India Won't Play Until March 7 Or 8

    Headshot for Jonathan India

    Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell said that infielder Jonathan India (foot) won't play in Cactus League games until around March 7 or 8. India cannot reinjure his foot, but the Reds are building him back up in a controlled workload. India will be taking live batting practice, where the Reds can control his baserunning. The 27-year-old former National League Rookie of the Year recently had a setback with the plantar fasciitis in his left foot, so the team is going to play it safe with him so that he'll be ready for Opening Day in late March. Still, it's not a good sign for a player that is expected to have to bounce around at multiple positions, including outfield, to stay in the lineup regularly in 2024. In addition to India, second-year infielder Matt McLain recently had a setback with his oblique injury. If both players are healthy, McLain is expected to be the primary second baseman after impressing in his rookie season.

  • Reds Hope Jonathan India's Foot Issues Are Resolved Soon

    Headshot for Jonathan India

    Cincinnati Reds second baseman Jonathan India (foot) didn't get a chance to work in the outfield this offseason as much as the Reds expected because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot, an injury that landed him on the injured list last summer and popped back up in the offseason. He was able to take batting practice and field ground balls on Tuesday at camp, but he's still going through a ramp-up program. "He said the foot feels fine and he feels no pain," general manager Brad Meador said. "It's just about building up endurance." The 27-year-old missed almost two months in 2023 due to the injury, so hearing that he's still not completely over the injury is bad news for a player whose fantasy value was already on the decline. In order to continue getting regular at-bats in 2024, India is going to have to move around defensively with youngster Matt McLain likely to see most of the playing time at the keystone.

  • Reds, Jonathan India Agree To Two-Year Deal To Avoid Arbitration

    Headshot for Jonathan India

    The Cincinnati Reds and second baseman Jonathan India agreed to a two-year deal to avoid salary arbitration on Friday. India will earn $3.8 million in 2024 and $5 million in 2025 and can also earn escalators in the second year based on plate appearances or games started up to an additional $2.05 million. This was the 27-year-old first year of arbitration eligibility after he hit .244/.338/.407 with 17 home runs and 14 stolen bases for the Reds in 119 games in 2023. The former National League Rookie of the Year is going to have to move around (possibly to the outfield) in order to keep playing consistently in 2024 given the team's abundance of infield options. India could also be traded before the deadline in August.

    The Reds infield has been a story as far back as last summer, as opposing teams have tried to leverage Cincinnati’s depth in that regard in trade discussions. GM Nick Krall and his front office have resisted that kind of move, maintaining they’re happy to stockpile position player talent which they can rotate through the…

  • Jonathan India Could Move Around In 2024

    Headshot for Jonathan India

    The Cincinnati Reds have so much infield depth entering the 2024 season that it's going to take some creativity to rotate six infielders among four positions and designated hitter. It could include second baseman Jonathan India playing in unfamiliar spots, such as first base or left field. "He just wants to be on the field and in the lineup as much as possible. Obviously as a second baseman, but depending on how things shake out, to be able to get him on the field as much as he wants to be and as much as I want him to be, there may be other positions that he'll need to play," general manager Nick Krall said. The 27-year-old has only played the keystone in the big leagues with Cincy, but he has experience at third and shortstop from his time in the minors. The former Rookie of the Year could lose playing time if he struggles at the plate or is injured again, so a trade in 2024 might be the best for his fantasy value.
