Todd Frazier is the only player that changed teams - moving to the AL and playing at U.S. Cellular, does this allow him to hit more or less than 19 home runs at his new Park?

Khris Davis1611
Kole Calhoun1610
Brian McCann1610
Justin Upton1511
Evan Gattis1512
Luis Valbuena1510

Duda is a surprise on this list at Citi Field is not known to be a hitters park, but he hit just .215 on the road this year.

Sure, Abreu had a down year hitting just .290 with "only 30 HRs", but even in his rookie season he only hit 15 of his 36 home runs at home.

As a member of the Athletics, Davis moves to the O.co Coliseum and that could be a problem for his HR total in 2016.  Oakland's home field allowed the fourth least amount of HRs in the MLB last year.

Ryan Braun178
Mark Teixeira1714
Joey Votto1514
Matt Carpenter1513

Brian Dozier1513

Cespedes splits have been difficult to understand as he has not played for just one team since the Athletics in 2013.

It's weird to see Bryant crushing a majority of his HRs at Wrigley Field while Rizzo hit nearly half of his on the road.

The Mariners hit 90 home runs at home last year, but Cruz and Seager, the teams leading HR hitters, only hit 24 of them?  Robinson Cano and Mark Trumbo combined for 19 homers at Safeco Field.

Mark Teixeira played in just 111 games last year, but managed to hit 31 home runs.  You would think that most of those would have come via the short porch in RF at Yankee Stadium, but then you remember that Tex can hit the ball out of every ballpark in the MLB.
