The wife of former Mets reliever Scott Schoeneweis was found dead in their Arizona home yesterday. Police are not calling the death of Gabrielle Dawn Schoeneweis, 39, a homicide at this time, and they will, of course, be investigating the cause of death.
Schoeneweis was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the off-season.
Here is a quote from Jerry Manuel, as told to MLB.com: “I mentioned that to our people, that we’ve got to reach out and do all we can to help support him at this time,” Manuel said. “And whatever he needs from us, we’ll be here for him.”
And from Francisco Rodriguez, who played with him on the Angels, said: “I’m sad for him. I can’t imagine what he’s going through right now, all the pain he’s going through.”

Our thoughts and our prayers go out to him and his family.
