Best Answer

Unlike most sports, MLB uses a sophisticated minor league system to develop players as they see fit. Some players can make it from rookie ball to the majors in 2 or 3 months. Others can play in the minors for 15+ years and never make it to the bigs. For example, Albert Pujols went all the way through the Cardinals system in 2000 and made it to the big club in 2001 by winning a spot in Spring Training over Bobby Bonilla. Others are career minor leaguers, like Philadelphia Phillies catcher Chris Coste. And some come over to America from other places like Cuba and Japan and are ready to play from the get go like Ichiro Suzuki, Daisuke Matsuzaka, or Kazuo Matsui.
