He's hitting .395, but he's done that in limited time. Because of that, he wouldn't bring up your team average as much as a similar top BA hitter who has played for the entire year (like Ichiro). To compensate for that I ranked each player by BA and total hits and took the average of the two (e.x., Mauer earned 22 points for his 82 hits and 50 points for his .395 BA for an average of 36).

That's true, but he's the only one affected that way. Unless I prorated his stats for the year or used a smaller time frame (e.x., the last month) I wouldn't be able to account for that.
Besides this is based on what they've done for your team this year. Mauer has been terrific, but in a limited amount of time. The players who have been terrific all year have had a bigger impact in leagues and thus should be ranked higher IMO.
