ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Yadier Molina returned to the St. Louis Cardinals clubhouse this weekend and was greeted with a friendly prank. 

An Instagram post from Cardinals first baseman Jose Martinez showed Molina discovering all of his belongings had been moved into what looked like supply closet. You can see his "Yadier Molina 4" name plate, jersey, hat and bats in the closet.

Also in the video we learned that Molina has an incredible sense of humor. He picked up his athletic cup that was sitting on his chair in the closet and said, "At least I've got my cup." The Cardinals catcher had emergency surgery on May 5, after he was hit in the groin with a 102-MPH fastball from Jordan Hicks and suffered a pelvic injury with traumatic hematoma.

As to who moved his stuff, the video Molina suggests "Ernie" did it. Ernie Moore is the Cardinals equipment manager. 

But other possible suspects have to be the videographer Martinez, his close friends Carlos Martinez and Marcell Ozuna, or possibly the other catchers Francisco Pena and Steven Baron. 

No word yet on if Molina has launched an investigation.
