Seems like Back-up QB syndrome to me. 29 years old and never a big league sniff. The last time Bernadina spent significant time in the minors he had a .891 OPS at the age of 24.
Personally, I'd keep Lutz in the mix as the LH side of a LF tandem when Votto returns and there wouldn't be room for either Felix or Roger. IF Lutz doesn't hit, then Felix may get a look. Skippy on the roster may keep all these guys on the bench, but I'd use him more to give Phillips more time off and not as much in the OF unless these other guys fail.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
We do have to keep in mind that this isn't a 29 year old that has been languishing in the minors for 11 years or even 7.5 like a Marquez Smith. As far as total games, he's played the equivalent of roughly 3 full seasons.
Using words like "literally" don't help prove your point. -Chuckie
