Jonathan India responds to trade rumors: ‘I’m human’

Jonathan India of the Cincinnati Reds hits an RBI single against the Milwaukee Brewers in the fourth inning at American Family Field on July 25, 2023.

MILWAUKEE —One day. That’s all Jonathan India needed after getting blindsided by the business of big-league sports for the first time in his career.

“It was a mental day for me,” the Cincinnati Reds second baseman said Tuesday after spending the previous 30 hours or so seeing and hearing his name in trade speculation all over social media and even the sports talk shows on the clubhouse TVs.

“I needed a day to control my emotions,” he said. “It’s my first time going through something like this.”

The 2021 Rookie of the Year was back in the lineup again Tuesday, back to himself, another day wiser, if not necessarily any more sure whether he’ll still be wearing the only uniform he wants to wear when the trade deadline passes on Tuesday.
