|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, John Lackey pitched 2,840 innings and made 265 plate appearances. Lackey was worth 37.1 Wins Above Replacement (38.1 as a pitcher and -0.8 as a hitter) and 11.3 Wins Above Average (12.0 as a pitcher and -0.8 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 37.1 WAR becomes 37.1 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 11.3 WAA becomes 17.5 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Lackey 68.6 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 Lackey has a Hall Rating of 64, meaning he will not be in the Hall of Stats when eligible.
