As you know, Cincinnati’s 2018 first round pick was Jonathan India, a third baseman from the University of Florida. It has been interesting to watch as the Reds appear to have learned an important lesson from their refusal to try their top prospect, Nick Senzel, at any other position — despite the athleticism to play […]
