|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, John Sowders pitched 497 innings and made 237 plate appearances. Sowders was worth 0.6 Wins Above Replacement (1.4 as a pitcher and -0.7 as a hitter) and -2.1 Wins Above Average (-1.4 as a pitcher and -0.8 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 0.6 WAR becomes 0.2 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 -2.1 WAA becomes 1.4 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Sowders 2.8 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).
John Sowders has a Hall Rating of 3, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
