|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Ian Desmond made 5,944 plate appearances and pitched 1 innings. Desmond was worth 16.2 Wins Above Replacement (16.2 as a hitter and 0.0 as a pitcher) and -2.6 Wins Above Average (-2.7 as a hitter and 0.1 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 16.2 WAR becomes 16.2 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 -2.6 WAA becomes 6.0 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Desmond 27.0 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).
Ian Desmond has a Hall Rating of 25, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats when eligible.
