|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Pete Appleton pitched 1,141 innings and made 395 plate appearances. Appleton was worth 8.6 Wins Above Replacement (8.0 as a pitcher and 0.5 as a hitter) and -1.8 Wins Above Average (-2.1 as a pitcher and 0.5 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 8.6 WAR becomes 9.6 adjWAR. Then, WAA is adjusted by ignoring negative seasons (thus, truly capturing a player’s peak seasons) and making similar adjustments for catchers and relief pitchers. After these adjustments, the -1.8 WAA becomes 4.0 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Appleton 16.8 wWAR. wWAR is then converted to Hall Rating. A Hall Rating of 100 represents the Hall of Stats borderline (similar to OPS+ or wRC+, where 100 represents league average).
Pete Appleton has a Hall Rating of 16, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
