Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is holding a press conference.

While the interpretation of major league superstar Shohei Ohtani (30, LA Dodgers) sparked controversy over gambling and theft charges, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts consistently maintained 'no comment'.

Coach Roberts attended a press conference prior to the Major League Baseball Seoul Series game against the San Diego Padres held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 21st.

Before the game on this day, a report came out that shook the baseball world. Otani's interpreter, Ippei Mizuhara, was accused of engaging in illegal gambling and stealing a large amount of Otani's funds in the process.

According to foreign media, the amount of theft was reported to be $4.5 million (about 6 billion won).

Unlike the previous day, Director Roberts appeared at the press conference with a somewhat stern expression. As the press conference began, related questions poured in, but Director Roberts did not open his mouth.

He said, “I’m sorry, but I can’t say anything about the issue that everyone is aware of,” and only said, “Ohtani is ready to play today.”

Director Roberts also said, “I can’t give you an answer” to the question of whether Mizuhara left Korea. He continued, “We came here to play a baseball game. “Everyone focused and played well yesterday, and I think it will be the same today,” he added. Otani, who needed an interpreter immediately after Mizuhara was fired, will receive help from interpreter teammate Yoshinobu Yamamoto in today's game. On this day, Yamamoto is about to make his first major league debut. Coach Roberts said, “I think Yamamoto will do well today. “He may face some obstacles, but I don’t think he will be emotionally upset,” he said. “There haven’t been many samples to judge him on so far, so he will have to take a good look at today’s game.” 스포츠토토맨
