Matt Harvey enjoying post-surgery time in Russia with supermodel girlfriend (photo)

New York Mets ace Matt Harvey, only a few weeks removed from undergoing Tommy John surgery to repair a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, is spending some time visiting Russia with swimsuit model girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna, better known as simply “Anne V.”

Harvey, who recently said he is “ahead of schedule” with his recovery, is taking some time away from rehabilitation to enjoy the finer things in life: Traveling, visiting exotic locales, and to make it even better, doing so with a swimsuit model girlfriend. It’s a good gig if you can get it.

Vyalitsyna, a native of Russia, posted the above photo of the couple as they pay a visit and do some sightseeing in Moscow.

Presumably, Harvey will return from Mother Russia relaxed, refreshed and ready to continue the grueling rehabilitation that’s part and parcel of what’s in store following Tommy John Surgery. All the while being supported by his swimsuit model girlfriend. Not trying to be redundant — although I am, allow me to point out once again, it’s a good gig if you can get it.
