Modelizing Mets ace Matt Harvey showed he’s already in midseason form by pitching woo with super-duper lingerie model Adriana Lima in Miami.
“They were clearly making out,” according to a restaurant regular at Miami’s River Yacht Club, where the super couple arrived by yacht just before 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Harvey and Lima were spotted sharing oysters, a branzino for two, an easily recognizable bottle of Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque — and a side of tongue.
We’re assured they were “absolutely” on a date.
At one point, Lima, who lives in Miami but was born in Salvador, Brazil, asked the house DJ to spin some tunes from her native land and he obliged. Lima and Harvey’s romantic Wednesday night dinner date ended just after midnight.
Dating models is the 27-year-old Mets pitcher’s personal pastime. The Dark Knight, as he’s known, has been linked to Victoria’s Secret stunner Devon Windsor as well as long-legged beauties Anne Vyalitsyna and Shannon Rusbuldt.
Lima, 35, has a type, too. The veteran lingerie model was married to pro basketball player Marko Jaric for five years before they divorced in 2014. She was reportedly dating New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman during the last football season. It appears she’s now a three-sport athlete.
Lima was also spotted dining at the St. Regis Hotel on Tuesday night, where fashion brand Jitrois was throwing a party. As insider there — who knows nothing about baseball — tells us: “She was with a big guy — not sure if it was (Harvey), but he looked like he could be.”
At 6-feet-4 and 225 pounds, Harvey certainly fits the bill. The Mets are wrapping up spring training in Jupiter, Fla., which is 85 miles from Miami. Harvey, who’s battling back from thoracic outlet surgery, has so far not had the same heat on his fastball that he displayed in the past.
“I’m not worried about velocity. I’m worried about command,” Mets manager Terry Collins told sports reporters on Wednesday. No doubt Lima agrees.
Reps for Harvey and Lima did not respond to a request for comment. The restaurant where the date night happened declined to comment.
