Zack Wheeler's girlfriend Dominique Rizzo is a lovely young blonde living in New York City. She concerns herself mostly with Kim Kardashian and puppies, based on her recent social media activity. She is only twenty years old, so we've got to lower our expectations a little on her Twitter game. Based on everything she's shared on Twitter, young Dominique's outlook on life is the standard sunshine girl "positive vibes only" take. We see this a lot with very young girlfriends of athletes. They have not a care in the world, and life is cruising along for them. Good times for Dominique.

Recent mentions on various sites have catapulted Zack Wheeler's girlfriend to over 9700 followers on Twitter. Most of her tweets are rehashed threads of pop culture. She's definitely interested in an approximation of hip hop, she likes to read gossip magazines, and she is well aware of the power of being attractive. She tends to call women "bitches" and use profanities in her tweets because that's what she's learned passes for "cool," but we can't take that kind of thing too seriously. She's just young and wild and having fun. The bottom line is that she's a very pretty girl who knows she's pretty and likes to show it off. What girl wouldn't want to show off if they looked like her?

Dominique Rizzo has also apparently been doing some wining and dining. Dominique posted a picture of Zack and her at some kind of event (either sporting or a concert). Of course, they were behind the old VIP rope partition. I would be willing to bet that Dominique ends up dating more than one professional athlete before she's thirty. Call it a hunch or an educated guess, but I think she's found her calling.

Matt Harvey's girlfriend Asha Leo

There are models, and then there are models of modelling. Matt Harvey’s girlfriend Asha Leo falls into the latter category- an exclusive club reserved for those who run the modern fashionista gamut. Asha grew up in Kingston-upon Thames, attending the prestigious University of the Arts in London, where she got a degree in fashion promotion. Now, along with being a high-end model, promoting fashion is what she’s all about. She’s a host on the British show The Brit List, and she hosts Access Hollywood, covering fashion.

Matt Harvey may not host any shows or analyze fashion trends on red carpets, but he does host batters to a grueling challenge when they step in the box. Last year, Matt became an all-star and went 9-5 with the league’s 3rd best ERA at 2.27. He was also the number one pitcher at not allowing home runs per 9 innings pitched, with an anemically low .353 allowed. The man is simply hard to hit, and his Mets appreciate that fact.

He is, however, easy to spot off the field. He was seen hanging with Asha at a Knicks game recently on his day off from rehabilitation. Matt was diagnosed with a torn ligament last year, and he recently underwent “Tommy John surgery,” which is a procedure where a ligament in the elbow is replaced with a tendon from somewhere else in the body. To me, it sounds awfully dicey for a pitcher to have serious elbow trouble. Injuries have been the bane of many a great talent, and one can only hope that Matt makes a speedy recovery. He threw a ball for the first time in months in February, and now he’s been quoted in the New York Times: “I feel brand new.” Might Asha have something to do with that?

Jacob Degrom's wife Stacey Harris Degrom is livin' the dream. She just got married to the National League rookie of the year, she's going to Rangers games and sitting next to celebrity chefs (as reported by TMZ), she's heading off to Hawaii to catch some rays. What more could you want out of life? TMZ Sports gave a kind of super-excited rush interview before he left for dinner with Stacey. The guy interviewing him was so amped up Jacob looked a little tongue-tied.

For Jacob's wife Stacey, things could not be better. Stacey was seen a little earlier in the year helping out kids at a Mets community reachout program where she made duct tape wallets, lanyards (I'm not sure what those are), and bags with youngsters. Apparently a lanyard is one of those things that you hang around your neck for your keys. Gym teachers and coaching types use them for whistles too. So she's already into the giving-back aspect of being a player wife. Helping kids and less fortunate people is one of those great things good sports organizations hook up their players and significant others with.

The couple's trip to Hawaii is just one of those classic honeymoon destinations that you can't go wrong with if you're a valuable athlete. The more you pay, the better your getaway will be-- that's the golden rule of big relaxing vacations. Speaking of value, Jacob is still at the point where he's getting the rookie bucks even though he's the rookie of the year. That means he's being paid $500,000 a year instead of something way higher, which is sure to come. So the Mets right now are getting some great value out of him, and Stacey's ring is taking up a more significant percentage of his income than it would have had be been in the league a few more years and gotten out of the rookie salary stage. Jacob's wife Stacey ain't going anywhere but up.
