A Major League Baseball agent has been accused of filming players while they showered. 

According to FanRag, Jason Wood, the president of baseball for CSE, has been suspended from work pending an investigation into claims he filmed clients while they showered at his home in St. Louis. 

His clients include major stars suich as  the Seattle Mariners’ David Phelps and the Atlanta Braves’ Joey Wentz.

The allegations came to light after a player allegedly discovered a camera while he was taking a shower. He reportedly then confronted Wood about it before firing him as his agent. 

Since the claims came to light, Wood has also been fired from his firm. 

“For over 32 years, CSE Talent has prided itself on our moral and ethical standards and have built a solid reputation within the industry,” said CSE president Danny Martoe in a statement.

“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.”

Despite the claims, Wood has denied all the allegations made against him and labelled them "absurd and untrue".
