Andrew Benintendi's agent fired after discovery of hidden camera

Andrew Benintendi's agent fired after discovery of hidden camera

CSE Talent, for whom Wood worked, reportedly fired him upon learning of the allegations.

So what was Wood's alleged failing?

Other players have already begun to leave, with Pittsburgh Pirates' Mitch Keller firing Wood's previous employer, Career Sports Entertainment, and hiring Excel Sports Management, three sources tell FanRag Sports. After that alarming discovery he confronted the agent and fired him on the spot.

A baseball agent is under investigation by the MLB Players Association and has been fired for allegedly filming clients in the shower with a hidden camera, according to FanRag Sports.

According to ESPN, none of the players represented by Wood have made plans to to leave CSE Talent. He added that the company takes pride in working with individuals who represent the values he mentioned. "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". He added that he was disappointed there exists those who chose to spread harmful and irresponsible rumors. His client list also included Jake Odorizzi, David Phelps, Matt Reynolds, Ryne Stanek and a number of top prospects, Colorado's Riley Pint and Atlanta's Joey Wentz among them.

Report: Agent Jason Wood Fired By Agency, Under Investigation for Alleged Use of Secret Camera

Jason Wood headed up the baseball division at CSE Talent.

The story raises many questions that will go unanswered - why do clients need to use their agent's shower? - and of course the internet responded with plenty of jokes, many not suitable for print.

Whatever the case, this story is absolutely freaky.

Wood built his original agency, Arland Sports, with aggressive recruiting of amateur players across the Midwest.
