Multiple sources suggested to FanRag Sports that other players were also being filmed.

The alleged issue came to light recently when an unidentified player was using the shower at Wood's home and discovered a camera inside. This player immediately confronted Wood and fired him on the spot.

The list of Wood's clients included Jake Odorizzi of the Tampa Bay Rays, David Phelps of the Seattle Mariners, Andrew Benintendi of the Red Sox, and many other top players who may have visited Wood's home during the offseason.

Jason Wood, the agent fired by CSE for allegedly filming clients in the shower, represents Mets' utility man Matt Reynolds. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports has since received a text from Wood, refuting the allegations.

Wood in a prepared statement that was posted by the sports site on Twitter said that the accusations that surfaced this week were both untrue and absurd.

Wood has been fired from his position as the president of baseball for CSE Talent, an Atlanta-based sports agency.

Baseball agent Jason Wood is reportedly being investigated for filming clients while they showered.

"For over 32 years, CSE talent has prided itself on our moral and ethical standards and have built a solid reputation within the industry", Martoe wrote.

It continued by saying that over the last 13 years he has worked to build his agency into a success through hard work and integrity. After the player confronted the agent, he summarily fired him and, presumably, brought the issue to the Major League Baseball players union. He added that he was disappointed there exists those who chose to spread harmful and irresponsible rumors. The union, which certifies agents, said it would give Wood a chance to respond.
