"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," CSE talent president Danny Martoe said in a statement. "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."

According to the report, a player who chose not be identified was using a shower at Wood's home and found a camera. He then confronted Wood, firing him immediately. The Major League Baseball Players' Association has suspended Wood and is investigating the allegations, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
