|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Bret Saberhagen pitched 2,562 innings and made 227 plate appearances. Saberhagen was worth 59.0 Wins Above Replacement (58.9 as a pitcher and -0.1 as a hitter) and 36.5 Wins Above Average (36.6 as a pitcher and -0.1 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 59.0 WAR becomes 61.5 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 36.5 WAA becomes 37.4 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Saberhagen 128.8 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).
Bret Saberhagen has a Hall Rating of 121, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
