Get ready to see Matt Harvey in a whole new way.

The Mets' fireballing phenom will pose nude in ESPN The Magazine's "The Body" issue, along with several other notable athletes, including Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Though Harvey's appearance in the magazine is certainly notable, he won't be the first member of the Mets to strike a pose for ESPN. Jose Reyes appeared in the issue in 2011.

Other athletes who will pose in the magazine include beach volleyball star Kerri Walsh Jennings, WNBA All-Star Swin Cash, John Wall, Kenneth Faried, Vernon Davis and 77-year-old golfer Gary Player.
