The player confronted Wood, then followed by firing him immediately, sources say.
Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reported that Wood, the now former President of Baseball at CSE, has been fired after "allegedly filming numerous clients while they were using his shower". "We take pride in working with people who represent these values", CSE President Danny Martoe said in a statement. Several players have already moved on from the company and are seeking new agents, according to FanRag Sports.
The report on FanRags says a player, who chose not be identified, was using a shower at Wood's home and found a camera, sources say.

They've also informed residents that if they are considering leaving their homes, they should do so earlier rather than later. The two bystanders then rushed to the man's aid and brought him ashore, where he was taken to hospital in a stable condition.
CSE Talent, the agency headed by Lonnie Cooper, said in a statement Wednesday that it had fired Jason Wood, who had headed its baseball division since last April. He has also be suspended by the Major League Baseball Players Association. "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".
CSE's website states that it represents about 100 major-leaguers, and Wood represented players like Kansas City third baseman Cody Asche, Boston outfielder Andrew Benintendi, Seattle reliever David Phelps, and Tampa pitchers Jake Odorizzi and Ryne Stanek.
