Capellan and Hendrickson sent down

The Brewers two main pitching prospects, Jose Capellan and Ben Hendrickson, were reassigned to AAA today.  This is a great move--I'd love to see both of these guys up in May or June after working out some of the kinks.  As I said in my chat with Bryan at Against the Grain (which I'll be posting here tomorrow), Capellan may be best served with the better part of another year in the minors.  He could be an solid mid-rotation starter, if not more, as long as he isn't rushed.

Jeff Bennett was also sent down.  He was less than outstanding last year, but managed to log quite a few innings for a Rule V pick.  I'd imagine he remains one of the first guys to be called up in the event of a bullpen injury.
