|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Mel Nelson pitched 173 innings and made 35 plate appearances. Nelson was worth -2.1 Wins Above Replacement (-2.1 as a pitcher and -0.1 as a hitter) and -3.0 Wins Above Average (-3.0 as a pitcher and -0.1 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the -2.1 WAR becomes -2.5 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 -3.0 WAA becomes 0.0 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Nelson -2.5 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).
Mel Nelson has a Hall Rating of -2, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
