CINCINNATI -- The Reds have agreed to terms on a contract with 2018 first-round Draft pick, third baseman Jonathan India, a source confirmed to MLB.com on Sunday. The deal is pending a physical, which is expected to be taken soon.

The 21-year-old India was the fifth overall pick drafted out of the University of Florida. He was not able to immediately sign because his school was still playing in the postseason and College World Series.
