Jason Wood, the agent for Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi, was reportedly fired by his company and suspended by the Major League Baseball Players Association for filming his clients with a hidden camera while they showered.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, Wood was fired by Career Sports Entertainment and suspended by the MLBPA for filming his clients with a hidden camera. According to FanRag Sports, Wood was using that camera to film his clients while they showered at his home.

Wood, who represents roughly 50 big leaguers, founded Arland Sports in 2006. It was acquired by CSE Talent in 2017, with Wood taking over its baseball division. CSE president Danny Martoe excoriated Wood in a statement.

"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. "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 choose to terminate with cause Wood's employment."

According to a spokesman with the MLBPA, Wood remains listed in their system as Benintendi's agent.
