2019 Fantasy Outlook
Last year's No. 5 overall pick confirmed positive biases in his initial Appy League assignment. However, it will be his 27-game run in the Midwest League that garners the most attention from those in dynasty-league drafts. As one of the most advanced college hitters in the draft, he deserved a taste of Low-A in his debut year, and was 14 percent better than league average despite hitting .229, as he worked the count (11.6 BB%) and hit for power (.167 ISO). Over his final 13 games, India's BABIP (.344) normalized and he hit .277/.370/.511. He looks to do damage to the pull side when he gets his pitch -- an aggressive approach that will lead to plenty of strikeouts, but could result in Cody Bellinger-esque production in the big leagues. Like Bellinger, India is a versatile defender (capable of playing everywhere in the infield) with good speed and instincts on the bases. His surface stats could lead to an unwarranted discount in first-year player drafts. Read Past Outlooks
