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.

A player who chose to not be identified recently discovered the camera in Wood's shower and called him out on it before promptly firing him, according to FanRag Sports.

The player fired Wood after a confrontation, according to FanRag, which said there is an investigation into other allegations of recording other players. At some point, we'd have to expect that Wood will choose to comment.

Wood represented many players around Major League Baseball, including the Boston Red Sox's Andrew Benintendi, Colorado Rockies' Riley Pint and Atlanta Braves' Joey Wentz.

Jason Wood was sacked Wednesday from his position as president of baseball for Career Sports Entertainment, which specializes in representing athletes and sports media personalities.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department said it doesn't suspect foul play, and that the friend is a witness, not a suspect. Blaze left the house without telling his parents and went with his friend to the park, located about five minutes away.

CSE Talent acquired Wood's Arland Sports agency past year. Murray reported that other unidentified players had also been filmed by Wood.

CSE said in a statement that Wood failed to uphold the agency's "moral and ethical standards". "We take pride in working with people who represent these values", CSE President Danny Martoe said in a statement.

Red Sox star Andrew Benintendi was represented by baseball agent Jason Wood, who has been fired after being accused of recording clients in a shower. CSE Talent, for whom Wood worked, reportedly fired him upon learning of the allegations.

CSE has offices in St. Louis, Atlanta, New York City and Miami, and says its represents 100 major leaguers.
