PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed pitcher Scott Schoeneweis on the 15-day disabled list because of depression, less than three months after his wife was found dead at their home.

The 35-year-old left-hander spent three weeks on the bereavement list after his wife, Gabrielle, was found dead on May 20 in the master bedroom of couple's home in the Phoenix area.

Since returning on June 9, Schoeneweis has given up 15 earned runs in nine innings. He is 1-2 with an 8.24 ERA in 38 games this season.

A cause of death has not been made public, and an attorney for Schoeneweis says the family has filed suit to keep the records sealed.

Arizona recalled left-hander Daniel Schlereth from Double-A Mobile to take Schoeneweis's place on the roster.
