His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Mel Stottlemyre baseball stats page.

"I think Mel's been very underrated. He was really a dominant pitcher for the Yankees until he got hurt. He broke more bats than anybody. He had that great sinker ball, a good slider and good control. He was a big-game pitcher. He was a lot like Catfish Hunter , personality wise, in that he was always the same. After a game, you couldn't tell whether he won or lost. He was one of those guys who wouldn't go into a shell after he lost a game, get mad, and not talk to the press, or anything like that. he was the same guy all the time. But when you talk about great Yankee pitchers, he's usually never mentioned. People have kind of forgotten about him, but this guy was really tough." New York Yankees outfielder Roy White in The 50 Greatest pLayers in New York Yankees History (Robert W. Cohen, Scarecrow Press, '#29. Mel Stottlemyre', 06/16/2013, Page 152)
