Interesting question. What do the best pitchers hit? .250 with 2 HR a year? That's probably good for maybe 10 to 15 extra runs per year. That's not a big infusion of offense to really consider anything more than (like you said), a nice bonus. It would probably translate into maybe one extra win per year, at most.
Then again, I have no stats to back this up, so take it for what it is...i.e. pure conjecture.
