New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Robinson Cano, Adam Jones, Yasiel Puig and Albert Pujols are among the big league stars that will travel to Japan for a series of games this November.

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington will guide the MLB stars in the five-game set against a team of Japanese All-Stars.

It will mark the 11th All-Star series and the 36th time overall that a team of Major League Baseball players will tour Japan for games. The current five-game format was adopted in 2006, the last time a group of MLB stars squared off against a team of Japan All-Stars. The MLB team went 5-0 eight years ago.

The opening game will take place in Osaka on Nov. 12 before heading to Tokyo for three games on the weekend of Nov. 14-16. The final game of the series will be in Sapporo on Nov. 18.

Two exhibition games will bookend the series -- the first on Nov. 11 and the last on Nov. 20.
