Due to the different opportunities presented to Black and Latino players before integration, the Hall Rating of these players does not accurately reflect their Hall of Fame cases. When possible, the Hall of Stats uses Eric Chalek’s Negro League MLEs to present an alternate Hall Rating for prominent early Black and Latino stars. Bullet Rogan has a 160 Hall Rating using these MLEs. The rest of the stats on this page come from real game data, not MLEs.

|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Bullet Rogan made 2,376 plate appearances and pitched 1,500 innings. Rogan was worth 61.6 Wins Above Replacement (23.7 as a hitter and 37.8 as a pitcher) and 43.5 Wins Above Average (18.2 as a hitter and 25.4 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 61.6 WAR becomes 74.9 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 43.5 WAA becomes 45.3 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Rogan 156.4 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).
Bullet Rogan has a Hall Rating of 147, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
