The answer is that the Reds should make multiple changes, even small ones.
They could trade Ludwick or Heisey for a lefty bat. Then, send out Harris and keep Frazier.
The offense needs some re-working, even if the moves are relatively minor.
Another option is to send down Harris and give him some at bats. He'll get it going, then he could come back.
What's the sense in having a LH bat if the LH bat can't hit? Give me the best hitters I don't care what side of the plate they stand on
