Due to the different opportunities presented to Black and Latino players before integration, the Hall Rating of these players does not accurately reflect their Hall of Fame cases. When possible, the Hall of Stats uses Eric Chalek’s Negro League MLEs to present an alternate Hall Rating for prominent early Black and Latino stars. Mule Suttles has a 126 Hall Rating using these MLEs. The rest of the stats on this page come from real game data, not MLEs.

|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Mule Suttles made 3,649 plate appearances and pitched 16 innings. Suttles was worth 37.0 Wins Above Replacement (36.7 as a hitter and 0.1 as a pitcher) and 25.3 Wins Above Average (25.1 as a hitter and 0.0 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 37.0 WAR becomes 67.2 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 25.3 WAA becomes 25.3 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Suttles 112.7 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).
Mule Suttles has a Hall Rating of 106, making him a member of the Hall of Stats—but one who sits very close to the borderline.
