OPS of Giants pinch hit at bats.

The Giants have a total of about 300 pinch hit plate appearances. A lot of those are high leverage situations, where the outcome of the game lies in the balance. I think it would be really interesting to see the OPS associated with that, as well as RE24, win probability added (WPA) etc. Considering those plate appearances collectively, as if they were one player, what is that players value as measured in appropriate advanced and semi-advanced stats as on fan graphs. I have a feeling the numbers, especially WPA and RE24, which are probably the most meaningful retrospective stats..., well I have a feeling they are pretty darn high. This would provide a measure of the effectiveness of the Giants pinch hitting, which I think and expect is very potent despite the collective batting average (which is not that important) being about .200 .
