Re: Q. and A. with C. Trent Rosecrans
I don't think Bruce was rushed to the majors. He was dominating AAA and forced himself to be called up. He had nothing left to learn at the minor league level.
It's debateable. He had very few ABs between AA and AAA before being promoted (less than a season's worth). What isn't debateable is that he has struggled quite a bit in the majors, and most of those struggles took place when he was hitting 3rd/4th. I'd keep him away from those spots for awhile. He's still young and just a handful of September ABs removed from the bad times.
