New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey was photographed for ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue, which is due out next week. The second-year pitcher has dominated this season, going 7-2 with a 2.27 ERA in 123 innings. His hot start was enough to make him a person of interest for ESPN’s shoot, and the magazine sent out a tease of what his photos will look like. You can see that tease below:

Though Harvey was covered by the robe in that photo, he will be naked in the magazine.
“It was all hanging out,” Harvey told the New York Post last week. “It won’t be hanging out in the pictures, but I was definitely hanging out during the shoot.”
Harvey already told The Post he plans on taking heat from his teammates for the shoot. I bet he didn’t realize how much heat he’d be taking from the online crowd.
Posing with his “sup girl?” face, Harvey’s tease photo naturally became a meme. Most of them contained strong sexual innuendo. Some are pretty dirty. We’ve posted them below:

Harvey, by the way, is dating SI swimsuit model Anna Vyalitsyna, so he’s definitely getting the last laughs.
