MLB Agent Jason Wood Fired for Allegedly Filming Clients in the Shower

Andrew Benintendi's agent, Jason Wood, suspended by MLB Players Association after allegations he filmed clients showering (report)

Wood, who is unrelated to the former Major League Baseball first baseman of the same name, was sacked by the player who confronted him over the camera, according to Sports Illustrated.

So what was Wood's alleged failing?

According to reports from FanRag Sports, the player discovered the camera while showering at Woods' St. Louis-area residence. After that alarming discovery he confronted the agent and fired him on the spot.

FanRag Sports reported several unnamed players have fired CSE as its agency and noted how "other players (were) being filmed, with their identities being unknown".

Before he was sacked, he represented the Boston Red Sox's Andrew Benintendi, Colorado Rockies' Riley Pint, and Atlanta Braves' Joey Wentz, to name a few.

"The allegations that have surfaced today are absurd and untrue", Woods said in a statement.

"For over 32 years, CSE Talent has prided itself on our moral and ethical standards and have built a solid reputation within the industry", the company's president, Danny Martoe, said.

His clients included Boston's Andrew Benintendi.

In addition to being fired, Wood was suspended by the Major League Baseball Players Association pending an investigation. He added that he was disappointed there exists those who chose to spread harmful and irresponsible rumors.

"Scouts hated working with him because he's such an asshole and liar, but this story is absolutely disgusting", the baseball person said.

Woods has begun losing clients, with Pirates minor leaguer Mitch Keller reportedly moving to Excel Sports Management.

CSE Talent, which represents pro golfers, baseball players, coaches, and sports broadcasting personalities, appointed Wood director of its baseball division last April.
