|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Sterling Hitchcock pitched 1,285 innings and made 240 plate appearances. Hitchcock was worth 8.1 Wins Above Replacement (9.5 as a pitcher and -1.3 as a hitter) and -3.2 Wins Above Average (-1.9 as a pitcher and -1.3 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 8.1 WAR becomes 9.1 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 -3.2 WAA becomes 3.8 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Hitchcock 15.9 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).
Sterling Hitchcock has a Hall Rating of 15, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
