FanRag Sports reports, Woods filmed several of his clients while they showered using hidden cameras at his home. "It's unfortunate that CSE Talent aligned itself with someone who didn't uphold these same standards and therefore we choose to terminate with cause Wood's employment".

Wood has been fired by CSE Talent, where he had been hired as the president of their baseball division back in April 2017. Murray reported that other unidentified players had also been filmed by Wood. CSE president Danny Martoe excoriated Wood in a statement.

According to Murray, one player found a camera while using the shower at Wood's home before confronting him and firing him. Over the past 13 years I have worked tirelessly to build a successful agency through integrity and hard work. FanRags.com writer Robert Murray was the first to report allegations against Jason Wood.

Before coming to CSE, Wood founded Arland Sports, where he represented roughly 50 players, including seven who were on Major League Baseball rosters at the time.

Big leaguers?Benintendi, Jake Odorizzi, David Phelps, Ryne Stanek and Cody Asche and prospects Riley Pint, Joey Wentz and Mitch Keller are among the players who had been represented by Wood during their professional careers.

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. The New York Daily News reported that he has been suspended by the union pending that inquiry.
