After a brief rehab stint with Triple-A New Orleans, Marlins left fielder Christian Yelich returned to the club Sunday -- albeit sans glove. The 22-year-old outfielder had his glove and hat stolen from his luggage on his flight back to Miami.

Via Fish Pond:

Everything was normal until he opened his luggage only to find his glove and Zephyrs' cap were missing. The New Orleans cap was no big deal, but Yelich had broken in the black Louisville Slugger brand glove, which has his full name inscribed on the side. Yelich was planning on using that specific glove the rest of the season.

That's a pretty weak effort, glove thief.

Yelich reportedly does have a backup glove, though it's not yet broken in, so he had to use Jake Marisnick's mitt Sunday.

The former first-round pick Yelich entered Sunday hitting .259/.342/.418 with 12 doubles, five triples, six homers, 24 RBI and 10 steals.
