A woman is suing Toronto Blue Jays designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion for battery, TMZ Sports revealed on Monday. 

The woman alleges Encarnacion gave her two sexually transmitted diseases following a February trip to the Dominican Republic and is requesting more than $11.5 million in damages. Encarnacion’s agent offered no comment to TMZ Sports regarding the allegations.

A league official told John Lott of Vice Sports that MLB had no statement regarding a potential investigation as of Monday. 

Encarnacion’s agent Paul Kinzer commented on the lawsuit in a statement released to Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi on Tuesday:

[Encarnacion] will take every legal measure to defend himself against this frivolous claim, and will bring appropriate claims in the appropriate forums against all of the individuals seeking to exploit his financial position. This is an unacceptable attack on his exceptional character and stellar reputation within the baseball community as a man who carries himself with the highest level of integrity. 

Mr. Encarnacion will not be commenting on this matter. He will not allow this to distract from his continued focus of contributing to his team’s success. We kindly ask that his privacy be respected.

The woman said she had an STD test following a separate encounter with a Blue Jays player in 2015, and the results came back negative for any disease. After returning from the Dominican Republic, the woman visited a doctor, who discovered the presence of two STDs.

The woman alleges Encarnacion misled her as to whether he had any STDs at the time of their February rendezvous.
