So I'll go with Bruce, but I also think that if this is the case, they need to *start* spring training with the mindset that he is going to be there or there's going to be a 100% pure tryout (rather than Choo being the default with Bruce only stepping in if he fails). He's going to need that time to readjust in that mindset.
Additionally, while I know the stats, I haven't seen enough of Choo in the outfield to have a strong opinion about it.
If they think there's a good possibility Bruce will be the CF, he needs to start training for it now. Not just shagging fly balls, but in his offseason conditioning. More speed, less bulk. He's still young enough for it.
