[jwplayer 1qgKBOOv-01Ju7kF1]

MLB agent Jason Wood was fired Wednesday after shocking allegations were levied against him.

Wood is being accused of secretly filming his clients in the shower at his home, FanRag Sports first reported.

An unnamed player was recently using Wood’s shower and discovered a camera in it, according to the FanRag report. The player confronted Wood about it before firing him.

Numerous other players reportedly were filmed in the shower.

News about the disturbing allegations quickly gained traction.

CSE Talent, where Wood was president of baseball, announced Wednesday that it had fired him. Wood joined CSE in April 2017.

Yahoo Sports MLB columnist Jeff Passan reported that Wood was suspended by the Major League Baseball Players Association.

“His suspension by the MLBPA prevents him from representing players, and the union could decertify him, pending the investigation into the hidden-camera allegations,” Passan wrote.

President of CSE Talent Danny Martoe released a statement addressing Wood.

“For over 32 years, CSE Talent has prided itself on our moral and ethical standards and have built a solid reputation within the industry,” Martoe said. “We take pride in working with people who represent these values.

“It’s unfortunate that CSE Talent aligned itself with someone who didn’t uphold these same standards and therefore we chose to terminate with cause Wood’s employment.”

While CSE Talent is trying to quickly find Wood’s replacement, several players have already fired the agency, according to reports.

Wood’s clientele included talented Boston Red Sox up-and-comer Andrew Benintendi, Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi and Seattle Mariners pitcher David Phelps.

He also represented MLB prospects Riley Pint, Joey Wentz and Mitch Keller.

The CSE Talent statement said Martoe and Brian Roof, the agency’s general counsel, will now lead the baseball division.

CSE Talent is based in Atlanta and New York.

The agency represents more than 200 people in both the sports and news industry.

“In an industry built on the foundation of relationships, we pride ourselves on staying true to those roots and on the longevity of the relationships we have created and maintained,” reads CSE’s mission statement. “CSE Talent’s team of esteemed agents has built the company’s heralded success on long-term relationships with our clients, guiding them step-by-step through their careers. We are here for you every step of the way, every minute of the day.”

The timing couldn’t be worse for CSE, with baseball in the middle of offseason free agency.
