2020 Fantasy Outlook
India's breakout junior year at Florida that led to the Reds selecting him with the No. 5 overall pick in 2018 looks like the outlier. Some of the criticism of him has been overblown -- his .256/.346/.410 line in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League does not look great, but he was the ninth-best hitter on the circuit (125 wRC+). He was even better in the Southern League (138 wRC+), but it's the nature of his production that is underwhelming, especially for those in batting average leagues. He hasn't hit for much power and his .270 BA at Double-A was a career high. Additionally, his body has gotten worse, losing much of the explosiveness that allowed him to play shortstop in college. The Reds sent him to the Arizona Fall League, where his .587 OPS ranked 47th out of 57 qualified hitters. India will get to the big leagues, likely in 2021, but his ceiling no longer looks worthy of a top-five draft pick. Read Past Outlooks

Invited to big-league camp

January 10, 2020
India received an invitation to big-league camp from the Reds on Friday.
ANALYSIS
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.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Last year's No. 5 overall pick confirmed positive biases in his initial Appy League assignment. However, it will be his 27-game run in the Midwest League that garners the most attention from those in dynasty-league drafts. As one of the most advanced college hitters in the draft, he deserved a taste of Low-A in his debut year, and was 14 percent better than league average despite hitting .229, as he worked the count (11.6 BB%) and hit for power (.167 ISO). Over his final 13 games, India's BABIP (.344) normalized and he hit .277/.370/.511. He looks to do damage to the pull side when he gets his pitch -- an aggressive approach that will lead to plenty of strikeouts, but could result in Cody Bellinger-esque production in the big leagues. Like Bellinger, India is a versatile defender (capable of playing everywhere in the infield) with good speed and instincts on the bases. His surface stats could lead to an unwarranted discount in first-year player drafts.
