So what was Wood's alleged failing?
According to FanRag Sport's Robert Murray, Wood was accused of filming players who used his shower. After that alarming discovery he confronted the agent and fired him on the spot. They report that a number of Wood's clients have cut ties with CSE altogether and are looking or have already hired new representation.
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.

CSE Talent said in a statement Wood had been dismissed after failing to uphold the company's "moral and ethical standards". "We take pride in working with people who represent these values", CSE President Danny Martoe said in a statement.
Major League Baseball's commissioner's office did not make a comment with regard to this situation, as it is an issue that involves the player's union directly and not the commissioner's office. There are some who always got a weird vibe from Wood - one baseball person called him the "scum of the Earth", even before Tuesday's news broke. The publication's sources indicated the anonymous player isn't the only victim among Wood's clients. Over the past 13 years I have worked tirelessly to build a successful agency through integrity and hard work. He added that he was disappointed there exists those who chose to spread harmful and irresponsible rumors.
Wood's original agency, Arland Sports, was acquired by Atlanta-based CSE previous year and named him president of its baseball division.
