Clement, Jeff
Butler, Billy
Fowler, Dexter
Martinez, Fernando
McCutchen, Andrew
Pence, Hunter
Reimold, Nolan
Gonzalez, Gio
Hughes, Phil

It really depends on who's available. If the talent level that's available is all crap, you should keep the guys you have but without knowing what you can add, it's hard to assess who you should keep.

Knowing very little about the functionings of your league I would say keep. Hughes, McCutchen, Pence, Butler, and Martinez are in very good standing. I like Fowler and Reimold personally, and Clement could have a huge future if he recovers from injury and progresses like he was supposed to. And by no means are Patton and Gonzalez mediocre.

the 3 guys that turn me off just looking at it is

Clement (wont stay as a C injury set him back)
Gio Gonzalez - not that good
Troy Patton- not that good either.

granted the pitchers have upside i just think theres better out there.

Is there a cap on # of minors to keep? Assuming you're at your cap already, I would drop Clement and Patton. Maybe even Fowler, depending on what you project to get in the 3rd round. Where are you positioned in the draft and how many teams are in the league?
