The wife of Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Scott Schoeneweis was found dead in the couple's home yesterday, the Arizona Republic reports. Investigators have yet to determine how Gabrielle Schoeneweis died, but they said there are no signs of foul play. Schoeneweis learned of his wife's death just before last night's double-header against the Florida Marlins in Miami and immediately left to join their four children.

"I'm at a loss for words. In the baseball side of things, our families are our rocks," Diamondbacks manager AJ Hinch told MLB.com. "So, as I told the team, it's time to just give him as much support as you can and really, really tell people you love that you do, because you never can expect something like this to happen."
