The Major League Baseball Players Association is investigating agent Jason Wood after he allegedly filmed some of his clients while they were showering, FanRag Sports' Robert Murray reported Wednesday. 

According to Murray, one of Wood's clients discovered a camera in the shower at Wood's home. CSE Talent, for whom Wood worked, reportedly fired him upon learning of the allegations. 

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan shared a statement from CSE Talent president Danny Martoe:

"For over 32 years, CSE Talent has prided itself on our moral and ethical standards and have built a solid reputation within the industry. We take pride in working with people who represent these values. 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 also provided a statement on the allegations to Passan:

Murray also reported a number of players have severed ties with Wood. According to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick, there's a "feeding frenzy" for Wood's former clients who are seeking new representation.

Crasnick listed Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi and Seattle Mariners reliever David Phelps among Wood's clients in MLB. He also represented Colorado Rockies prospect Riley Pint, who was the fourth overall pick in the 2016 draft, and Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi.
