Reds second baseman Jonathan India has been on fire of late.

There's no denying that when Jonathan India is healthy, he's one of the most electrifying lead-off men in baseball. Over the last month, the reigning NL Rookie of the Year has reminded Reds Country that he's a special player.

Slashing .292/.370/.425 with 18 runs scored in his last 30 games, India's numbers are comparable to the .269/.376/.459 slash line he produced during his award-winning rookie campaign. As good as the second baseman has been over the last month, he's been ever better the last two weeks.

In his last 55 at-bats, the Florida native has 18 base hits and reached safely via a hit or walk an astonishing 25 times. However, India's offseason could be just as intriguing.

Following the massive deals young superstars such as Atlanta's Austin Riley and Seattle's Jose Rodriguez have received, one must wonder if the Cincinnati front office will open the purse strings with a contract that will keep India in the Queen City for years to come.

While he may not be on the same level as those two budding stars, there's little doubt that Jonathan India is the type of player to build a quality ball club around. The Cincinnati Reds would be wise to lock up their young second baseman for the foreseeable future.

Prediction: Reds sweep the Rockies at GABP

Can the Reds continue their recent domination of the Rockies at GABP? Absolutely. Let's be bold. Look for the Reds to sweep the three-game set and extend their winning streak to eight over Colorado in the Queen City.
