Jonathan India has been having a rough stretch of things out in Arizona the past month. The Glendale Desert Dogs third baseman has been picking things up a little bit lately, though. He’s homered twice in his last 11 at-bats, including once on Thursday.

Overall he’s hitting just .130/.255/.283. But in the last eight games he’s hitting .250/.417/.542 with a double, two homers, and four walks.
In the game on Thursday he wasn’t the only Cincinnati Reds prospect doing damage. Shortstop Jose Garcia picked up a double in the game, his second of the AFL season.

Stuart Fairchild also added a double in the game, going 1-4 with that double, a run scored, and he drove in two runs. Tyler Stephenson also went 1-4 and scored a run.
The Reds lose Cody Atkinson to the Rangers
Last offseason the Cincinnati Reds hired Cody Atkinson to be their run production and hitting assessment coach. The job only lasted for one season. The Texas Rangers swooped in and hired the now 30-year-old to be their new minor league hitting coordinator.
Hunter Greene keeps on working his way back
It was just over six months ago that top prospect Hunter Greene underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. He’s been throwing off of flat ground for nearly five weeks now, but shared another update on twitter on Thursday.
