[5/27/2016] Kensuke Kondo to resume workouts at catcher

Kensuke Kondo was taken off the active roster today because of performance issues. He will also resume workouts as a catcher. The Nippon Ham Fighters used Kondo in right last season to keep his bat in the line-up. His numbers have not been very good this season, making it difficult for the team to continue sending him out to right. Catching would give the Fighters additional options.
