The Washington Nationals today granted hitting coach Mitchell Page a leave of absence for undisclosed personal reasons and named Lenny Harris interim hitting coach. Nationals Vice President and General Manager Jim Bowden made the announcement.

Harris, 42, joins Manny Acta's staff on an interim basis after beginning the season as the Nationals infield coordinator at the minor-league level. Harris joined the Nationals organization as infield coordinator on August 9, 2006.

Originally Cincinnati's fifth-round selection in the 1983 Draft, Harris hit .269 with 161 doubles, 21 triples, 37 home runs, 369 RBI and 131 stolen bases in 1,903 big league games spanning 18 seasons with Cincinnati, Los Angeles (NL), New York (NL), Colorado, Arizona, Milwaukee, Chicago (NL) and Florida. Perhaps best known as baseball's all-time leader in pinch hits (212), Harris was a part of four postseasons, including the Marlins 2003 World Championship club. He will wear uniform No. 9.
