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.
