I'll take "Americans" to mean "foreign players" and try to put something together. This is unofficial, as I may miss some foreign players who have their names registered in Kanji. And, yes, I know that Oh is considered Taiwanese by many, but he's officially Japanese.

Career:
  1. 288* Tuffy Rhodes (Kintetsu/Giants)
  2. 283 Leron Lee (Lotte)
  3. 277 Boomer Wells (Daiei)
  4. 268 Leon Lee (Yakult)
  5. 259 Ralph Bryant (Kintetsu)
  6. 246 Clarence Jones (Kintetsu)
  7. 232 Bobby Marcano (Yakult)
  8. 218 John Sipin (Giants)
  9. 205 George Altman (Hanshin)
  10. 202 Randy Bass (Hanshin)

* As of end of 2003 and continuing.

Yearly:

  1. 55 Tuffy Rhodes (2001 - Kintetsu)
  2. 55 Alex Cabrera (2002 - Seibu)
  3. 54 Randy Bass (1985 - Hanshin)
  4. 51 Tuffy Rhodes (2003 - Kintetsu)
  5. 50 Alex Cabrera (2003 - Seibu)
  6. 49 Ralph Bryant (1989 - Kintetsu)
  7. 49 Alex Cabrera (2001 - Seibu)
  8. 48 Charles Manuel (1980 - Hanshin)
  9. 47 Randy Bass (1986 - Hanshin)
  10. 46 Tuffy Rhodes (2002 - Kintetsu)

Again, I'm not sure that this includes all foreign players as there's no distinguishing record/field marking them as such.

Here's what I get in a quick attempt:

Career (through end of 2003):
1.  Tuffy Rhodes     288  (active)
2. Leron Lee 283
3. Boomer Wells 277
4. Leon Lee 268
5. Ralph Bryant 259
6. Clarence Jones 246
7. Bobby Marcano 232
8. George Altman 205
9. Randy Bass 202
10. Roberto Petagine 194 (active)

Single season:

1.  Tuffy Rhodes, 2001  55
1. Alex Cabrera, 2002 55 (tie)
3. Randy Bass, 1984 54
4. Tuffy Rhodes, 2003 51
5. Alex Cabrera, 2003 50
6. Alex Cabrera, 2001 49 (tie)
6. Ralph Bryant, 1989 49 (tie)
8. Chuck Manuel, 1980 48
9. Randy Bass, 1986 47
10. Tuffy Rhodes, 2002 46

It may not be perfect, but it should be close to the mark. Hope this helps.

I see I missed Sipin. Petagine is right around his mark at this moment.
