Chihiro Kaneko will be sent down to Ni-gun and will remain there until he is one hundred percent better.

Keneko complained of discomfort in his lower back during a bullpen session on Sunday and did not participate in practices today.  He had similar problems after his start against the Rakuten Eagles on April 6 and was taken off the active roster the following day.

The Buffaloes were initially hoping for Kaneko to return to the active roster in time for a start against the Softbank Hawks on April 17.
