|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Bob Shawkey pitched 2,937 innings and made 1,136 plate appearances. Shawkey was worth 46.9 Wins Above Replacement (46.4 as a pitcher and 0.5 as a hitter) and 18.5 Wins Above Average (18.2 as a pitcher and 0.5 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 46.9 WAR becomes 50.2 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 18.5 WAA becomes 20.2 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Shawkey 86.6 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).
Bob Shawkey has a Hall Rating of 81, leaving him short of induction to the Hall of Stats.
