|About the stats|
So far in his career, Chris Sale has pitched 1,678 innings and made 27 plate appearances. Sale has been worth 45.6 Wins Above Replacement (45.6 as a pitcher and -0.1 as a hitter) and 29.7 Wins Above Average (29.8 as a pitcher and -0.1 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 45.6 WAR becomes 46.3 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 29.7 WAA becomes 30.3 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Sale 100.8 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).
Chris Sale has a Hall Rating of 95, meaning he would not be in the Hall of Stats if his career ended today—but he would be close.
