|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Bob Caruthers made 2,906 plate appearances and pitched 2,828 innings. Caruthers was worth 59.5 Wins Above Replacement (14.8 as a hitter and 44.7 as a pitcher) and 38.9 Wins Above Average (10.2 as a hitter and 28.7 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 59.5 WAR becomes 52.2 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 38.9 WAA becomes 32.1 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Caruthers 110.0 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).
Bob Caruthers has a Hall Rating of 103, making him a member of the Hall of Stats—but one who sits very close to the borderline.
