Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has his name in the Major League Baseball record books.

The 27-year-old Texan belted his MLB-leading 37th home run on Sunday as Baltimore cruised by the Toronto Blue Jays 7-4.

The 37th homer tied an American League record at the All-Star break.

With his recent power surge of homering in his fourth straight games, Davis equaled Reggie Jackson’s 1969 American League record for home runs before the All-Star break. The MLB overall record is 39 by Barry Bonds in 2001.

Davis has 93 RBI’s at the break, which is second-most in MLB behind Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera. He and Cabrera are the only players in major league history to have 30 home runs and 90 RBI’s at the All-Star break.

The left-handed hitting Davis has reached career highs in both homers and RBI’s and still has 66 games left to add to his totals.

Washington Nationals dilemma: Strasburg innings to be limited even if needed in pennant race

If the Washington Nationals are going to get into the playoffs, they’ll have to be very creative with the innings pitched by staff ace, 24-year-old Stephen Strasburg.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo has been saying for weeks that the former San Diego State star will not pitch more than 180 innings in 2012.

So far, Strasburg is on pace to pitch 184.1 innings in a very solid year so far.

In April 2012, Strasburg accumulated an NL-best 34 strikeouts and second-best 1.13 ERA. He totaled 6 walks and did not give up a home run. Consequently he was named National League Player of the Month.  On May 20, Strasburg went 2-for-2 as a hitter in a game against the Baltimore Orioles and hit his first career home run, a solo shot off of Wei-Yin Chen.

In his June 13 start against the Toronto Blue Jays, Strasburg became the first pitcher of the year to strike out 100 batters.

On July 1, Strasburg was elected to his first All-Star Game.

The Washington Nationals have been controlling the National League East since the early days of the season.

Toronto Blue Jays lock up Encarnacion with three-year contract

At one time last season, the Toronto Blue Jays were thinking about releasing Edwin Encarnacion due to lack of production and his play in the field. They had designated him for assignment which meant they had 10 days to release, trade or send him to the minors. They decided on the latter.

Since his demotion and return to the big leagues, the 29-year-old Encarnacion has improved dramatically.

A former third baseman, Encarnacion, now Toronto’s first baseman, has been given a new three-year contract by the Blue Jays. The $27 million deal has a $10 million club option for the 2016 season.

A former member of the Cincinnati Reds from 2005-2009, Encarnacion is hitting .295 with 23 homers and 58 RBI’s.

In his career, the Dominican Republic native has a .264 batting average with 802 hits, 140 home runs and 450 RBI’s.

Vladimir Guerrero is trying to get back to the major leagues and was playing well at Triple-A with the Las Vegas 51′s of the Pacific Coast League.

The veteran outfielder/DH was hitting .303 in eight games.

But the 37-year-old pulled a shocker. He asked for and received his release by the Toronto Blue Jays.

There was no word to why the nine-time All-Star who has played for Montreal, the LA Angels, Texas and Baltimore, on why he wanted to be released.

There is no doubt that Guerrero can still hit. In 2010, he hit .290 in 145 games with the Orioles.

Slugging outfielder/designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero had quite a career in Major League Baseball with Montreal, the LA Angels, Texas and Baltimore.

His totals are a .318 average, 2,590 hits, 449 homers, 1,496 RBI’s.

But no one wanted to sign him as a free agent after the 2011 season.

Cleveland took a look at him briefly during spring training down in his native Dominican Republic. And now, the Toronto Blue Jays have him getting in shape in the minors.

The 37-year-old is moving up to Las Vegas, the Blue Jays Triple-A affiliate.

Guerrero was tearing up the Class A League at Dunedin, Florida, hitting .450 with a double, four home runs and eight RBI’s.
