New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey has been linked romantically to Sports Illustrated supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna, US Weekly reports. The two reportedly met at a New York Rangers game in an elevator when the ace right-hander received the 26-year-old supermodel's phone number. The couple were recently photographed at a New York Rangers playoffs game together earlier in the week.

A source told US Weekly that Harvey and Vyalitsyna are taking things slow due to busy work schedules but Harvey "seems to like her a lot."

Harvey, recently featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, is one of the best pitchers in baseball this season. The 24-year-old pitcher is 5-0 with a minuscule 1.93 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 70 innings this season for the Mets.
