* denotes that the Player was chosen on the Player Ballot and will be unable to participate due to injury.

@ denotes that the Player was selected as a Replacement for one of the Injured Players.

MLB.com's denotations for Injured Players and Injury Replacements is actually incorrect. I know denotations isn't a word (at least I don't think it is) but no matter.

@ is actually what denotes that a Player is unable to participate due to injury whereas * denotes that the Player was chosen as a Replacement for an injured Player.

Red Coloring of a Player's name will denote that they will not be able to pitch in the game due to pitching the Sunday prior to the Tuesday All Star Game.
Green Coloring of a Player's name will denote that the Pitcher has been selected as an All Star in order to replace a Starting Pitcher that is not able to participate due to starting on Sunday, July 14.

As per the All Star Game rules, Starting Pitchers that pitch the Sunday before the All Star Game are not permitted to pitch in the game but Player's Names will not turn into those respective colors until it's 100% certain that the Starting Pitcher in question will indeed pitch that game on the Sunday in question.

Currently Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers, Bartolo Colon of the Oakland Athletcs and Hisahi Iwakuma of the Seattle Mariners will currently be the ones that will be unable to participate in the All Star game for the American League due to starting on Sunday.

Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals and Travis Wood of the Chicago Cubs will currently be unable to participate in the All Star game for the National League due to currently being scheduled to start on Sunday.
