|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Dennis Eckersley pitched 3,285 innings and made 196 plate appearances. Eckersley was worth 62.4 Wins Above Replacement (62.3 as a pitcher and -0.2 as a hitter) and 30.5 Wins Above Average (30.4 as a pitcher and -0.2 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 62.4 WAR becomes 66.2 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 30.5 WAA becomes 36.3 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Eckersley 131.5 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).
Dennis Eckersley has a Hall Rating of 124, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
