Baseball agent Jason Wood has made a name for himself representing high-profile MLB draftees and helping them get the best deal possible. Unfortunately, he may be able to make a name for himself for much more nefarious reasons.
According to FanRag Sports, seven sources have confirmed that Wood is under investigation by the players union for allegedly filming clients while they were using his shower.
Wood has been fired by CSE Talent, where he had been hired as the president of their baseball division back in April 2017. According to FanRag, some of Wood’s clients have already fired CSE and hired new representation.
The alleged issue came to light recently when an unidentified player was using the shower at Wood’s home and discovered a camera inside. After the player confronted the agent, he summarily fired him and, presumably, brought the issue to the MLB players union.
It remains unknown which players may have been involved, though Wood represented many first-round picks in recent years. Before he was fired, he represented the Boston Red Sox’s Andrew Benintendi, Colorado Rockies’ Riley Pint, and Atlanta Braves’ Joey Wentz, to name a few. He also advised pitchers Tanner Houck and Blaine Knight in the most recent MLB draft.
Before coming to CSE, Wood founded Arland Sports, where he represented roughly 50 players, including seven who were on MLB rosters at the time.
