    Troy Tulowitzki
    Dante Bichette
    Andres Galarraga

    Marlins
    Jeff Conine
    Giancarlo Stanton
    Mike Lowell
    Dan Uggla

    Diamondbacks
    Steve Finley
    Jay Bell
    Matt Williams
    Paul Goldschmidt
    Tony Clark
    Justin Upton
    Chris Young

    Rays
    Evan Longoria
    Carl Crawford
    Fred McGriff
    Ben Zobrist
    Rocco Baldelli
    BJ Upton

    I may have the Uptons confused, I have no idea really which one was on which team before they went to the Braves, but I think that is right. This was hard, I kept feeling like I was forgetting names from the "pumped up" 1990s. The two Florida teams were the hardest, due to their large amount of terrible seasons. I basically picked names of guys I knew hit some home runs, but I have no clue if they hit a bunch with these teams!!!

    Sorry for the delay. I have updated to OP to reflect the correct guesses so far.

    Wow, this is really hard because the numbers are so small (and I never really paid any attention to any of these teams, having missed almost all their early years to living in Germany). I forgot Hanley Ramirez for the Fish. After Han-Ram, I am really scraping the bottom of the barrel. . . Unless Miggy hit a bunch for them too?

    Han-Ram - Marlins
    Miguel Cabrera - Marlins
    Greg Colbrun - D-Backs
    Erubiel Durazo - D-Backs
    Garret Atkins - Rockies
    Brad Hawpe - Rockies
    Greg Vaughan - Rays
    Jose Canseco - Rays
