The daily dispatches are beamed back to New England, each more breathtaking than the last.

A double? Two more hits? Another strong throw?

By now, Jackie Bradley Jr. must seem to anyone who hasn’t seen him play like a cross between the second coming of Willie Mays and a superhero.

Bradley isn’t quite so impressive. But the Red Sox’ touted center field prospect has gotten positive reviews from several of the scouts who sit behind home plate and jot notes to take back to their teams.

“In my opinion, he truly does have a chance to be an above-average major league center fielder,” a scout from one National League club said yesterday. “He’s fun to watch. I think he’s good enough that he could make (center fielder Jacoby) Ellsbury a nice trade chip for them later in the season.”

Lately, though, any discussion of Bradley has been focused on the short term, specifically whether the 22-year-old is ready to merit a spot on the Opening Day roster despite having never played above Double A, a decision that goes beyond his .444 average this spring.

The Red Sox probably won’t render their verdict until at least the middle of next week. Before last night’s game against the Phillies at JetBlue Park, general manager Ben Cherington outlined three criteria that will be taken into account with regard to Bradley.

Will he play every day? Is he really ready for the majors? Does he make the Red Sox better?
