Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish, 28, who was reported to be having a relationship with Fuji TV announcer Ayako Kato, 28, denied the rumor on his official Twitter site this week.
Sports Nippon reported on Feb 10 that Kato, popularly known as “Kato-pan,” and Darvish had dinner in a private room of an expensive restaurant in Tokyo.
Subsequently, there were a lot of comments from Darvish's Twitter followers asking whether or not the rumor was true. Darvish denied there was any romance, tweeting “No,” with a smile face mark, and additionally tweeting “Please don’t start following me trying to find out anything. Once again, I say there is nothing going on."
