|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Jeff Samardzija pitched 1,645 innings and made 395 plate appearances. Samardzija was worth 15.2 Wins Above Replacement (15.2 as a pitcher and -0.3 as a hitter) and 1.4 Wins Above Average (1.6 as a pitcher and -0.3 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 15.2 WAR becomes 14.2 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 1.4 WAA becomes 7.9 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Samardzija 28.4 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).
Jeff Samardzija has a Hall Rating of 27, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
