A recent edition of Shukan Shincho (weekly magazine) featured a report on an affair Yutaka Wada allegedly had with a talento named Nana Hoshi.
The Tigers released the following comment from Wada on Wednesday:
I offer my apologies to the fans and everyone else involved for the distraction a certain weekly magazine has caused with a report [on me] at such an important time during the season.
A spokesperson for the team spoke to reporters and said, "This is a private matter. There is no reason for the organization to make a comment. We will make sure that the parties involved deal with this matter accordingly."
