Matt Harvey, Model Asha Leo Are Making Headlines

While the New York Mets have gotten their season under way, pitcher Matt Harvey is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. Harvey may be sidelined from baseball, but what he’s not missing out on is the dating game. The 25-year-old has been doing his best Derek Jeter impression lately. On Sunday, he and model Asha Leo took in the Knicks-Bulls game in Madison Square Garden. As Larry Brown Sports points out, this is the third model Harvey has been seen with in the last couple of months – no big deal.

New York media was quick to jump on Harvey’s escapades, even contacting the Mets’ spokesman to dig up dirt on whether or not Harvey was violating his rehab agreement. He wasn’t, but that didn’t stop the headlines on Harvey and Leo from coming.

Some may hate on Harvey for enjoying himself while the Mets are hard at work, but what’s he supposed to do? Not hang out with models on his off time? To that, we say: don’t hate the player, hate the game. As long as he’s getting in the work he needs to, Harvey can play away.

In honor of baseball’s young playboy, here’s a photo gallery of Asha Leo.
