Any new thoughts on India given another month plus of data?  Seems to be outperforming expectations so far.

Jonathan India (2B) CIN - Jun. 04

India went 2-for-2 with a two-run homer, two RBI and two walks in Friday's 6-4 win over the Cardinals.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: India's fourth home run of the season came during a three-run second inning Friday. The rookie infielder has produced three multi-hit games in his last five games.

I'm no manager ... but I'd think that given India's mediocrity at the plate so far ... Cincy would do itself a big favor by just bringing up a defensive specialist like Alfredo Rodriguez ... accepting that he'll probably put up a .600 OPS ... but getting Suarez back to 3B where he's no longer a defensive liability and can focus on hitting again.

I'm sure that the Reds pitching staff would endorse that idea.

Jonathan India, 2B, Reds — In his MLB debut, India went 2-for-4 with a double. Eugenio Suarez had some trouble at shortstop with two errors, so the Reds’ experiment of sliding Suarez to shortstop so India could play second (with Mike Moustakas moving to third) wasn’t flawless. But India more than did his share on Thursday.

Went for a mere $4 in the endgame of my NL-only. I was down to pocket lint and subway token slugs when he came out.

I've got him at $8 now, the playing time seems to be there, at least for a while. And if he can play 2B better than Moustakas these moves make sense. But India's contact skills seem to be better than his power skills based on reports from last year's alternative sites, which apparently had some kind of Statcast for teams that opted in. And his defensive capabilities (weak arm at third, lack of range at second, lack of power in left field) all seem problematic. All of this goes away if he hits the ball the way he has this spring: 1.056 OPS so far. He won't, of course, but that he might hit SydThrift's targets makes him worth a high single digits bid. Don't let Syd get him.

I think he goes for $6 to $10 in most keeper leagues (if he is available).  Different story in re-draft.

Does India need a bid? I'm thinking $3-$4 as the Reds' 2B. Seeing him projected to hit 14 HR with 8 SB if he can hang on to the job.

See Badoo comment - India's at a 6.7 so far this spring.

I really like this feature.

For comparison, Suarez and Moustakas are at 8.1, Votto at 8.3.
