Depends if he is on a rehab assignment which would mean that he wouldn't play very long, only a few games. If he is a minor leaguer trying to reach the majors he generally stays in the minors for a couple of years playing on various teams affiliated to the major league club (Rookie, Short season, Single A, Single A advanced, Double A, and Triple A) to develop into a big leaguer. It depends on the organization if they want to promote him.
