All-Stars Robinson Cano, Adam Jones, Yasiel Puig and Albert Pujols lead the Major League roster that will travel to Japan in November for a five-game series against Samurai Japan, the country's National Team, in All-Star Series 2014.

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington, who led the Rangers to back-to-back American League pennants in 2010 and 2011, will manage the team.

In the 11th All-Star Series, and 36th MLB-Japanese exhibition dating back to 1908, a five-game schedule that follows a format established in 2006, will begin Nov. 11.

MLB's 2006 roster included All-Stars Ryan Howard, John Lackey, Joe Mauer, Joe Nathan, Jose Reyes, David Wright and Chase Utley and went 5-0 in the All-Star Series.

The schedule for the All-Star Series includes games in Osaka (Kyocera Dome), Tokyo (Tokyo Dome) and Sapporo (Sapporo Dome). Two exhibition games will complement the five-game series, with one game in Osaka (Koshien Stadium) and the other in Okinawa (Okinawa Cellular Stadium).
