    India just hit a long HR out of the stadium. Looks pretty solid to me.

    Select Lyon Richardson at #47 in the 2nd round, 6'2" 185 RHP, Jensen Beach HS, FL. A Florida commit.

    Select Josiah Gray at #72 in the 2nd round, 6'0" 190 RHP, D2 baseball's best prospect.

    He’s very Senzel-ish with maybe a better hit tool. He likes to get on base via hit or walk. Reds are collecting these guys.

    India looks very promising. I don't see him spending a long time in the minors. They think he can play a corner OF spot or 3B,2B, or SS. Lots of options.

    The Reds drafted OF Bren Spillane from the Univ of Illinois in the 3rd Round. Hes 64 and put up huge numbers (.389/.498/.903) to earn 2018 Collegiate Baseball Newspaper National Player of the Year, 2018 Big Ten Player of the Year and Baseball America First Team All-American honors.

    He hit 23 HRs this year to go along with a perfect 16/16 on SBs and a perfect 19/19 on SBs in his career.

    SB Nation funny write up:

    India will be traded for a veteran at the deadline in 2020. It’s shocking now, but not at the time. Really, nobody expected the Reds to be contending, but nobody expected Billy Hamilton to be hitting .302/.389/.501 in the first half either.

    When you’re dealt those cards, you push more in the middle of the pile. I can’t fault them for that.

    India hits 238 career home runs, finishing in the top-10 for MVP voting twice. Just not for the Reds.

    Grade - B-
