A Major League Baseball agent has been accused of secretly filming players while they showered.
Jason Wood is an agent for CSE Talent. He has been suspended from his position pending an investigation into claims that he secretly filmed multiple clients while they showered at his home in St. Louis.
The alleged victims include major stars including the Seattle Mariners’ David Phelps and the Atlanta Braves’ Joey Wentz.
The allegations come after a player claims he discovered a spy cam in Wood’s bathroom. He confronted Wood about it then fired him as his agent and reported him to the agency.
“For over 32 years, CSE Talent has prided itself on our moral and ethical standards and have built a solid reputation within the industry,” CSE president Danny Martoe said in a statement this week.
“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.”
Wood denies the allegations, calling them “absurd and untrue.”
“The allegations that have surfaced today are absurd and untrue,” he told Yahoo! Sports in a text. “Over the past 13 years I have worked tirelessly to build a successful agency through integrity and hard work. I am disappointed that there are those who have chosen to spread such irresponsible and harmful rumors.”
It is unknown just how many men may have been secretly filmed by Woods.
