Jason Wood, accused of surreptitiously recording clients in a shower.

A baseball agent was sacked by his firm and suspended by the MLB Players Association amid reports Wednesday that he had been accused of filming clients in his shower.

According to Murray, one of Wood's clients discovered a camera in the shower at Wood's home.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports several players Wood represents have stayed with him during the offseason. Multiple sources suggested to FanRag Sports that other players were also being filmed. At some point, we'd have to expect that Wood will choose to comment.

"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 wrote.

Jason Wood has been fired as the president of baseball for CSE Talent, according a statement from the agency, and the union confirmed that he's been suspended, pending further review.

No names for the alleged victims have been released, but Wood's clients include Andrew Benintendi of the Boston Red Sox, Riley Pint of the Colorado Rockies and Joey Wentz of the Atlanta Braves.

According to a spokesman with the MLBPA, Wood remains listed in their system as Benintendi's agent.

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. "We take pride in working with people who represent these values". CSE Talent, for whom Wood worked, reportedly fired him upon learning of the allegations. Some players have already fired CSE and have hired new representation or are looking to do so in the near future. He has played for six teams over nine seasons in a major-league career that began with Seattle.
