|About the stats|
So far in his career, Nelson Cruz has made 8,244 plate appearances. Cruz has been worth 42.6 Wins Above Replacement and 13.9 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 42.6 WAR becomes 44.2 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 13.9 WAA becomes 19.6 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Cruz 79.5 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).
Nelson Cruz has a Hall Rating of 75, meaning he would not be in the Hall of Stats if his career ended today.
