Bernadina has a career .252/.320/.373 batting line. His .370 OBP last year was largely the product of a .359 BABIP. And that's with the benefit of the platoon. I guess that's better than Drew Stubbs given how crappy he was last year, but I wouldn't trade much of value for him -- Arredondo maybe.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
