Jonathan India trade rumor Monday vastly overstated

MILWAUKEE — Cincinnati Reds second baseman Jonathan India spent much of his time before batting practice Monday by himself on the grass in left field at American Family Field, stretching and presumably processing the previous 18 hours or so.

After being told Sunday night it was his turn again to rotate to the bench for Monday’s big series opener against the Milwaukee Brewers, he awoke Monday to a report that the Reds have told teams they might be willing to trade the 2021 Rookie of the Year for the right young pitcher.

It’s a report multiple sources say is vastly overstated – falling into the category of there’s no such thing as an untouchable player – and led to conversations assuring one of the most respected players in the clubhouse of the slim-to-none chance he’ll be traded.
