|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Earl Whitehill pitched 3,564 innings and made 1,451 plate appearances. Whitehill was worth 36.8 Wins Above Replacement (36.1 as a pitcher and 0.7 as a hitter) and 2.4 Wins Above Average (1.8 as a pitcher and 0.6 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 36.8 WAR becomes 37.3 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 2.4 WAA becomes 9.4 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Whitehill 54.2 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).
Earl Whitehill has a Hall Rating of 51, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
