.873: Mauer’s on-base-plus-slugging percentage, again second only to Cochrane.
Top 10: Compared with first basemen, Mauer is seventh among 19 Hall of Famers in batting average, sixth in on-base percentage and 10th in on-base-plus-slugging. His lack of power stands out here, but his status as an on-base machine remains intact.
3: Batting titles for Mauer, already more than any catcher in baseball history.
13: Players who have won four batting titles. Twelve of those are in the Hall of Fame; Bill Madlock is the only one with four batting titles not in the Hall.
44.3: That’s Mauer’s career WAR, better than four catchers already in the Hall of Fame but better than only one of the 19 first basemen enshrined. If Mauer averages a 4.0 WAR over the next five seasons, his career WAR will pass 60, strengthening his case. Being able to stay in the lineup every day allows him more at-bats to put up numbers.
Mauer’s Hall of Fame Monitor score on baseball-reference.com, 23rd among active players of last season. A 100 means you’re likely to get in.
Had Mauer been a first baseman last season, he would have led AL players at that position in batting average and on-base percentage and would have been second in slugging percentage and on-base-plus-slugging percentage.
