I don't think we've seen anything out of Bruce over the last two seasons that suggests he would be an answer in CF.
Choo is likely to play long enough in center for us to argue. He probably isn't going to be there long enough for us to get an answer. Probably mixing in Heisey as platoon partner in CF a bit and letting Choo spell Ludwick in left as a rotational thing is the best way to hide Choo's glove.
Use a little creativity and let it be what it will be.
