Can the Cubs win with Pena's L-R splits hitting 4th

Carlos has respectable numbers against RHP. .259/.368/.505  However his stats against LHP is worse than terrible. .107/.233/.280

His RISP numbers are also very bad .179/.330/.403. But most of those positive numbers came against RHP. Again today we saw the Marlins bring in a LH reliever to face him and he went out on the 1st pitch with a GB to the 1B. The question is can the team compete over a season with their cleanup hitter whose splits beg the opposition to bring in LH relievers in the late innings? Is that the best we can get for $10M?
