|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Bill Hands pitched 1,951 innings and made 563 plate appearances. Hands was worth 27.4 Wins Above Replacement (30.0 as a pitcher and -2.6 as a hitter) and 10.2 Wins Above Average (12.7 as a pitcher and -2.6 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 27.4 WAR becomes 28.5 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 10.2 WAA becomes 15.7 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Hands 56.8 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).
Bill Hands has a Hall Rating of 53, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
