Spring training numbers, are spring training numbers.
He faced Montanez, Orr, Luna, Galvis, Kratz.

He also faced Pence, Ruiz, Rollins, Victorino, Mayberry, and any other Phillie that is even moderately good.Its the end of Spring training, where the lineups tend to greatly resemble what the regular season lineups will look like.

There is no correlation between spring numbers and regular season.

I might pass on this one. Beach may be a strong SP but only 1 yr, I think you know what you get in Lester for a handful of yrs to come. Goldschmidt will always have a below average K rate and long term you will find a better 1B keeper. If he was a 3B I would have a different opinion.
