Yoenis Cespedes almost lost one of his chains on a play again

It was announced on Friday that Yoenis Cespedes would be back in a Mets uniform after being activated from the disabled list. And it didn't take long for him to make some noise. He hit a homer in the top of the third inning of the Mets-Yankees game, which isn't bad considering he hasn't had any real action since May 13. And while he may have been pretty excited to be reunited with his team, he had some jewelry drama ... again.
In the bottom of the fifth, Michael Conforto smacked an RBI single to left field to drive in Cespedes. But on his way to the dugout, Cespedes had to remove his necklace that had fallen apart:

Hopefully it was just a small latch situation, but this isn't the first time he's had some issues with his necklace.
Back in May, Yo broke his necklace sliding into second -- only this time, it sent diamonds flying everywhere on the field. It was actually quite beautiful, but he wasn't too happy about it.
Diamonds aren't always your best friend, but we are glad Cespedes is back.
