Will Kazuki Kondo really finish the season at Ni-gun?

Kazuki Kondo (ORI) was demoted to Ni-gun on 9/2, just one day after dropping his fourth straight start in a row.  A fairly heated Akinobu Okada told reporters he didn't think Kondo would get another chance to start at Ichi-gun this year.

Fast forward to last night: Kondo is added back to the active roster and gets another Ichi-gun start.  While Kondo didn't get the loss, he did give up 3 runs (all earned) on 5 hits over 1.2 innings of work (48 pitches).

After the last night's game, Okada was once again up in arms and said that he would be sending Kondo back to Ni-gun and that he would be getting no more starts this year.
