This can potentially be a long grind before the Achievement is unlocked. When your My Player character starts the mode, he is placed at the AA level midway through the summer. You will be presented with a number of conditions that must be met before you are promoted from AA, and you have approximately half a season to do so.

These conditions will include a number of vital statistics which are important to your chosen position. You must earn sufficient experience points to raise these stats (such as Contact/Power vs. LHP/RHP, speed, catching, fielding range, bunting, etc.) You earn experience in three categories, which limits to which vital stats those points may be applied. Batting points are earned through hits, walks, RBIs, extra-base hits, drawing walks, etc. Fielding points are earned through put outs, assists, double plays, diving catches, etc. Finally, baserunning points are earned through advancing, stealing bases, hit and run, tagging up, and scoring runs.

In addition to these vital statistic requirements, you will be presented with a list of performance requirements. These may include reaching a certain number of home runs, sacrifice bunts, stolen bases, struck-out batters, batting average, etc. They will also include a minimum number of games played - in my first baseman's case it was 20, and I assume that it likely holds true for all players.

Once you reach the required level in all of these requirements, you will be promoted to AAA, and you will again be presented with an additional list of requirements. Your vital stats will probably stay the same, but you will have to reach all the performance stats again. Then, once you manage those goals, you will get called up to the MLB level and the Achievement will unlock.

Caution - if you don't make AAA before the end of your first season, you will have to start all your AA performance goals over again - including your 20 games played. I recommend playing the Spring Training games in between seasons. You won't earn any progress toward your performance goals, but you will earn valuable XP that can be used to add a significant boost to your vital stats.

On a personal note, this Achievement took me 176 games played before I was able to unlock it. Hopefully it will take you fewer, especially if you reach AAA before the end of your first season and don't have to repeat AA. Good luck!
