The Cincinnati Reds have announced that their 2018 1st round Amateur draft pick, Jonathan India has been promoted from High-A Daytona to the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts. (There are two levels in Class A but only one in Double-A and Triple-A.)

On the season, India is hitting .256/.346/.410 for Daytona. In his 87 games played this season he’s hit 15 doubles, 5 triples, and 8 home runs. He’s also walked 37 times and struck out 84 times. The Florida State League is considered the most pitcher-friendly league in the minor leagues - a league that suppresses power output in a big way.

India will be taking the roster spot of Mitch Nay who is moving up to Triple-A Louisville. Nay had a slow start in April after beginning the season on the injured list, and then playing sparingly once he did return. But when May began seeing every day playing time, he’s gone off on Southern League pitching.

Through 82 games with Chattanooga, Nay has hit .304/.366/.561 with 22 doubles, 2 triples, 13 home runs, 25 walks, and 48 strikeouts. He’s leading the league in OPS by 36 points, and in slugging by 40 points. He’s also third in average at .304 and in the top 10 in on-base percentage.

The argument can be made that he’s been the most valuable player in the league thus far.

Nay is a free agent following this season but the Reds can keep him in the organization by adding him to the 40-man roster. Given what he’s done in Double-A this season, using the last six weeks of the season to see what he can do against a little bit more advanced pitching at Triple-A goes a long way.

Although winning is important, fans must remember that players are striving to reach the Major Leagues.
