A good defensive MLB caliber SS who can hit decently is too valuable of a commodity to simply keep for spot starts. A SS like that could bring too good of a return to waste like that.
Except both are probably over-exposed playing every day. I think as a tandem, they could make the Reds SS production among the best in the league. On their own, they are defensive specialists who will struggle to get on base and be in the bottom half of the league production wise. Not sure that either would bring back more than an interchangeable part on their own.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
