|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, John Clarkson pitched 4,536 innings and made 2,060 plate appearances. Clarkson was worth 83.2 Wins Above Replacement (85.0 as a pitcher and -1.8 as a hitter) and 45.3 Wins Above Average (47.3 as a pitcher and -2.0 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 83.2 WAR becomes 67.3 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 45.3 WAA becomes 40.1 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Clarkson 139.5 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).
John Clarkson has a Hall Rating of 131, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
