I suppose they could invite Fellhauer. I plead ignorance regarding the diminishing returns of apportioning playing time among too many players. Keep in mind that Fellhauer is a corner who has never played above AA and does not show a great deal of power. That said, I suspect he will get a few chances to play with the ML spring training team anyway.
The way I read your previous comment made it seem like they are uncertain about Bruce and Choo playing centerfield, or they are having doubts about it, and that's more or less where I was going. Barring injury, they are going to go with that.
As for the Fellhauer comment, meh. That was the rhetorical. (And was more in response to the comment above yours about the disbelief that he wasn't invited.)
