Over the course of a full season, a Frazier-Bruce-Ludwick outfield is probably not a good idea. But in one month, it might work.
Is there any evidence that Bruce would be able to play center at a passable MLB level?
The fact that he hasn't been there since 2008 but a backup middle infielder has says a lot about that.
