I think he should stay in AAA, he'll probably have AAA mastered in 2 weeks and be hitting over .300 there anyway.
I'd think the point of leaving a guy in one spot for awhile is to allow the league he is in to adjust to whatever he is doing, and then see if your guy can adjust to that. If you rush a guy through each step, he doesn't learn to adjust to how he is being worked and that'll lead to disaster at the MLB level. They won't take months to adjust and the guys throwing the pitches can exectute the adjustments much better than your average AA/AAA guy can.
That said, each individual is different and a guy hitting as well as Bruce looks like he could handle the promotion and learn to adjust at the AAA as well as he can the AA level.
