|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Henry Merchant made 426 plate appearances and pitched 42 innings. Merchant was worth 1.0 Wins Above Replacement (0.8 as a hitter and 0.1 as a pitcher) and -0.4 Wins Above Average (-0.3 as a hitter and -0.1 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 1.0 WAR becomes 3.4 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 -0.4 WAA becomes 0.1 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Merchant 3.6 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).
Henry Merchant has a Hall Rating of 3, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
