Reds discussing Jonathan India trade; 5 possible fits for 2B

CINCINNATI (BVM) – Cincinnati Reds second baseman Jonathan India’s name was a popular one at the MLB trade deadline, but nothing ever came to fruition. Now, months after the deadline, India’s name has once again surfaced during the MLB general manager meeting.

India, the National League Rookie of the Year in 2021, is seen as a movable asset due to young infielders Matt McLain, Elly De La Cruz, Spencer Steer, Noelvi Marte and Christian Encarnacion-Strand all being called up to the Reds in 2023. During the season, India batted .244 with 17 home runs, 61 RBI, 23 doubles, 52 walks, a .746 OPS and 1.4 WAR in 119 games.

While he doesn’t have the strongest glove, earning a -0.7 WAR in the field, India is clearly an asset at the plate as the right-hander is a career .255 hitter with a .350 OBP, a .769 OPS, 48 home runs and 171 RBIs.

Given his offensive prowess and youth at just 27 years old, India is seen as a potential long-term piece for teams. With that in mind, here are five possible destinations for India.
