Shohei Ohtani to Deliver Statement, Decline Questions

On Sunday in the Dodgers clubhouse, superstar Shohei Ohtani announced that he would be available to reporters on Monday. However, the definition of “available” in his case appears to mean that he will be reading a statement prepared by lawyers and P.R. specialists, and will not be answering any questions. The statement is scheduled to be read at 5:45 p.m. ET.

This story is being closely followed because it revolves around gambling, rather than baseball. The situation involving Ohtani has a unique quality due to the fact that the gambling activities of his former interpreter occurred in California, where gambling is illegal. It’s possible (if not likely) that players in other sports, including the NFL, may also be involved in similar activities through legal gambling apps. The handling of Ohtani’s situation by MLB could provide insight into how to avoid potential scandals involving high-profile players in the future.
