|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, David Howard made 1,795 plate appearances and pitched 2 innings. Howard was worth 2.7 Wins Above Replacement (2.6 as a hitter and 0.0 as a pitcher) and -3.6 Wins Above Average (-3.5 as a hitter and 0.0 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 2.7 WAR becomes 2.8 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 -3.6 WAA becomes 0.5 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Howard 3.7 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).
David Howard has a Hall Rating of 3, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
