Rank these low-end AL only players

So I'm in a AL only salary ($50 cap) keeper league, and am one major league keeper short for my upcoming draft. Here is the list of players I could roster as my eighth keeper... the selection isn't great. I'd rather have someone start the year on the DL or in the minors (so I can replace them with a FA) than being a backup or playing terribly on my active roster. I am expecting to be competitive next year and want someone who will help now.

Andrew Miller at $0.50

Chris Parmelee at $0.50

Joe Benson at $0.75

Daisuke Matsuzaka at $0.50

Leonys Martin at $0.25

Brandon Allen at $0.25

Kevin Gregg at $0.75

Danny Duffy at $1.25

Trayvon Robinson at 1.25

I'm trying to figure out who I should take... I'm trying to keep this player cheap so I can spend elsewhere, so I'm shying away from Duffy/Robinson despite their potential. Miller is interesting but I'm not sure if I can trust him, and I like Allen and Parm but don't know their roster status.

My league's categories are AVG, HR, Runs+RBI, TB+BB, and SB on offense, and ERA, WHIP, Wins, Ks, and Saves for pitching. Anyway, how would you rank these guys for 2012, from most desirable for fantasy purposes at their respective salaries to least?
