An $11.5-million lawsuit against former Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion has been thrown out of court after a judge ruled on a jurisdictional issue.

Encarnacion, 33, now with the Cleveland Indians, was alleged to have infected Ashley Lebron, a 25-year-old family friend, with two diseases through unprotected sex in the Dominican Republic in 2016.
