Evaluating the remaining Negro Leagues Pitchers

This is it, kids! We’ve reached the end of the great Negro Leagues MLEs experiment. We close today with the rest of the pitchers we hadn’t gotten to when we abruptly closed up shop a few months ago. It’s a grab bag of guys that we hope you’ll find interesting.

So our great Negro Leagues peregrination comes to its end. We thank all of you for joining us along the way. We thank you for your patience, feedback, and encouragement. We also thank all the amazing researchers whose statistical findings form the foundation of this work. Most of all, we thank The Negro Leagues Database and Gary Ashwill for contributions to this field that will make of it what BBREF has made for white baseball.

  2. This is great, but where is your MAJOR League pitchers update after 2018?

  4. Welmaker looks like a compelling career/prime candidate, Brown and Salazer appear as close but no cigar, and holy cow on that peak for Whitworth – too bad he looks like toast in his mid to late 20s.
