You will still be able to play matchups (starts at favorable fields, vs. favorable RH starters, etc.) with the platoon; you just won't be getting their vs. LHP numbers. And for two super-late picks, that's definitely not the end of the world.
Now, with that said, it's probably worth noting that Molina's career line vs. LHP is considerably worse than his line from last season: an OPS of .830 instead of .950. Again, this flaw certainly isn't fatal, but there are probably other platoons out there that are more effective.
