Major League Baseball, in conjunction with the Major League Baseball Scouting Bureau,, Baseball America and the 30 Major League Clubs, selected the 25-man rosters for each club, the U.S. Team and the World Team.  Each Major League organization is represented and players from all full-season Minor Leagues were eligible to participate.

The teams feature 17 former first round draft picks (U.S. – 13; World – 4), six players picked in Compensation Round A (U.S. – 5; World – 1) and four second round picks (all U.S.).  Among the 17 first round picks, nine were selected in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, including each of the top four overall picks.  The World Team features players from 11 different countries and territories outside the 50 United States.  The Dominican Republic is represented by eight players, followed by Venezuela (six), Cuba (two) and Puerto Rico (two).

The SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game will last nine innings, and in the event of a tie, a 10th inning will be played.  The game will not go longer than 10 innings, regardless of the score.  Players and coaches will be outfitted in special SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game jerseys and will wear caps of their Major League organization with a SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game logo embroidered on the side.

The Minor League Baseball Umpires who will work the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game are Kolin Kline (home plate) of the Southern League, Tom Woodring (first base) of the Eastern League, Nick Bailey (second base) of the Pacific Coast League and Spencer Flynn (third base) of the Southern League.
