|About the stats|
So far in his career, Max Scherzer has pitched 2,682 innings and made 529 plate appearances. Scherzer has been worth 71.7 Wins Above Replacement (70.7 as a pitcher and 1.0 as a hitter) and 48.6 Wins Above Average (47.8 as a pitcher and 0.9 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 71.7 WAR becomes 75.4 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 48.6 WAA becomes 48.6 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Scherzer 162.9 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).
Max Scherzer has a Hall Rating of 153, meaning he would be in the Hall of Stats if his career ended today.
