Jason Wood, according to Yahoo Sports, was sacked by Career Sports Entertainment and suspended by the Major League Players' Association after allegations emerged that Wood used a hidden camera.

"Recently, a player who chose not be identified, was using a shower at Wood's home and found a camera, sources say", Murray noted.

CSE Talent, the agency headed by Lonnie Cooper, said in a statement Wednesday that it had fired Jason Wood, who had headed its baseball division since last April.

Jason Wood, an Major League Baseball agent, was sacked by CSE Talent on Wednesday for not upholding the company's "moral and ethical" standards, the agency announced. Multiple sources told the sports news outlet that Wood filmed clients in the shower. His suspension by the MLBPA prevents him from representing players, and the union could decertify him, pending the investigation into the hidden-camera allegations.

The agent who represents Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi has been accused of filming his clients in his shower, according to a report in Yahoo Sports and FanRag Sports. Over the past 13 years I have worked tirelessly to build a successful agency through integrity and hard work. Some players have already fired CSE and have hired new representation or are looking to do so in the near future.

Benintendi, a former teammate of Tate Matheny in Boston's minor-league system, has spent part of the past two offseasons in St. Louis because of his connection to Wood, friendship with Matheny, and the workout facilities in the area.

Wood, who represents roughly 50 big leaguers, founded Arland Sports in 2006.
