Major League Baseball announced the full roster it will send to Japan for the Japan All-Star Series in November.

MLB's squad, which will be managed by Miami Marlins bench boss Don Mattingly, includes Atlanta Braves rookie sensation Ronald Acuna Jr. and nine-time All-Star Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals.

However, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder and National League MVP candidate Christian Yelich, who was announced last month among the first wave of players, is no longer on the roster.
