|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Nap Rucker pitched 2,375 innings and made 859 plate appearances. Rucker was worth 47.2 Wins Above Replacement (47.1 as a pitcher and 0.1 as a hitter) and 29.1 Wins Above Average (28.9 as a pitcher and 0.1 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 47.2 WAR becomes 49.0 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 29.1 WAA becomes 31.4 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Rucker 105.5 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).
Nap Rucker has a Hall Rating of 99, making him close to the Hall of Stats borderline—but still on the outside.
