MLB BREAKING NEWS: Feds Make Decision On Shohei Ohtani Case

The Shohei Ohtani Drama over millions of dollars of his money that was transferred to his former interpreter to pay off gambling debts, appears to finally be coming to an end. According to sources, the LA Dodgers superstar has been determined to have been a victim of fraud and has been cleared of any wrongdoing. 

In addition, Ohtani's former interpreter, Ippei Mizuhara, is reportedly in negotiations to plead guilty to federal crimes in connection with the alleged theft of $16M of Ohtani's money.

Dodger Blue is reporting that the Feds have concluded the following: 

Our sources say the feds, who launched an investigation last month, have concluded Mizuhara was lying — that Ohtani was completely in the dark over the gambling debt, and Mizuhara embezzled from one of Ohtani’s accounts without the pitcher’s knowledge.  
The feds have concluded Ohtani was not involved in any wrongdoing and has never had any association with gambling or bookmaking.

Ohtani has just begun his first season with the Dodgers after signing a record-breaking $700 million free agent deal in the offseason to move crosstown from the LA Angels.
