|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Lyle Overbay made 5,802 plate appearances and pitched 0 innings. Overbay was worth 16.6 Wins Above Replacement (16.5 as a hitter and 0.0 as a pitcher) and -3.1 Wins Above Average (-3.1 as a hitter and 0.0 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 16.6 WAR becomes 16.6 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 -3.1 WAA becomes 3.6 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Overbay 23.1 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).
Lyle Overbay has a Hall Rating of 22, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
