Shohei Ohtani to address ex-interpreters gambling allegations on Monday

Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Shohei Ohtani is set to address the media on Monday regarding the alleged theft of $4.5 million by his ex-interpreter, Ippei Mizuhara, to cover gambling debts. The Dodgers have confirmed that Ohtani will speak on the matter before the team’s Opening Day.

Ohtani’s attorneys have refuted Mizuhara’s initial statement, claiming that Ohtani was a victim of a “massive theft” rather than willingly paying off debts. The team’s manager, Dave Roberts, stands behind Ohtani’s decision to address the situation to provide clarity.

Speculation has swirled around Ohtani, with questions arising about how he did not notice the stolen money until now and theories about his potential involvement in the situation. Mizuhara’s credibility has also been called into question, with discrepancies in his bio and conflicting statements about his work history with various teams.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have released a statement stating that they are gathering information on the matter and confirming that Mizuhara no longer works for the team. Both Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are planning to open investigations into the situation.

Despite the off-field distractions, the Dodgers are gearing up for their 2024 season opener on Thursday against the St. Louis Cardinals. Stay tuned to Bio Prep Watch for more updates on this developing story.
