The 2012 Major League Baseball All-Star Game is only days away and the rosters have now been announced minus the winner of the Firestone Final Vote which includes Jonathan Broxon of the Kansas City Royals on the American League side. Speaking of the AL, the rest of the roster has been announced and we have the complete list for you below.

Prince Fielder made the team in his first season in the AL, while Albert Pujols is notably absent. Justin Verlander helps anchor the staff a year after his history-making 2011 season, and Josh Hamilton is the leading vote-getter of all time with over 11 million votes.
