The club reinstated the lefty reliever from the restricted list and optioned another left-hander, Daniel Schlereth, to Double-A Mobile in a corresponding move.

Schoeneweis said he felt it was time to return to work after spending the last three weeks tending to the couple's four children and handling a myriad other matters.

Authorities have not determined a cause of death for Gabrielle Schoeneweis, 39, who was found dead in the couple's home in suburban Fountain Hills on May 20.
