That's now a .140 average in 121 AB's from this group. 1 for 6 (.167) today so they have brought the average up.
I've said for two years now that there Reds bench is far too anemic - especially for a roster that carries 12 pitchers. Right now, my third pinch-hitting choice on this roster (after whoever isn't playing between Ludwick/Heisey and Hanigan/Mesaraco) would be Mike Leake on the days he isn't pitching - he might even be second because you're not likely to burn your backup catcher very early in a game.
