MLB Draft : Expected Time to the Majors by Experience

 

Here is a chart showing the average time a player takes to get to the major leagues. These are averages, so your player could move quicker than this or slower than this, but it gives you an idea of when to expect help at the major league level. You can cross reference it with the positional chart I posted yesterday to estimate a time of arrival in the major leagues.
