Chicago Cubs outfielder Jacque Jones became the 27th--and hopefully last--member of the major league squad named to play in a five-game series in Japan next month, organizers announced Saturday.

Jones, who previously came to Japan for a tour in 2002 while with the Minnesota Twins, replaces New York Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran. The left-handed hitting Jones batted .285 this season with 27 homers and 81 RBIs.

Since both the major league and Japan squads were first announced, there have been numerous withdrawals and changes, most notably at manager, with Bruce Bochy the third choice for the big leagues.

The major league team features 10 players selected for this year's All-Star Game, including AL batting champion Joe Mauer of the Twins.
