Maybe so but Japanese players have historically hit less HR when they move to MLB.
H. Matsui, Japan PA/HR = 16.58, US PA/HR = 28.27
Ichiro, Japan PA/HR = 34.73, US PA/HR = 77.31
Iguchi, Japan PA/HR = 24.40, US PA/HR = 41.45
For the record Fududome's PA/HR in Japan was 23.45. 20 HR isn't out of the question but I would still be surprised if he got there.
