Matt Harvey is staying busy and making new friends during Tommy John surgery rehab

Last month Matt Harvey talked the Mets into letting him do his Tommy John elbow surgery rehab in New York rather than at their complex in Florida, so naturally he’s been taking in the local scenery.

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that Harvey “was spotted at Sunday’s Knicks game alongside British fashion model Asha Leo.” (Not to be confused with American fashion model Anne V, whom Harvey dated last year.)

Apparently as part of Harvey’s agreement with the Mets he must rehab in Florida when the team is on the road–basically the idea is to have some members of the team’s training staff around to assist him at all times–but his being in New York for the Knicks game during the Mets’ current road trip is a non-issue because rehabbing players have Sunday off anyway.

So, to recap: Harvey got a day off, called up a British fashion model, and sat court-side at Madison Square Garden. I’m also amused by the fact that the Post‘s picture of Harvey at the game shows the person sitting next to his date was Tracy Morgan. What a world.

    Hopefully he’ll make his way to “sitting” between Cara Delevingne and Michelle Rodriguez.

    Well he wasn’t much luck considering the knicks were eliminated from playoff contention last night

    I was at the Knick game last nite, the crowd got so hyped when Harvey was shown on the big screen. Phil Collins was there also, which was sweet.

    What a time and place to be a young star pitcher rehabbing an injury you literally have to take a year off from. I don’t care what Harvey does, because the Mets with screw it up somehow. Good for him for enjoying the spoils a little bit.

    Last month, when I wrote that Harvey wanted to do his rehab in NY rather than Florida. because of the hot women in New York, I was criticized. I appear to have been correct.
