Lenny Harris, the Nationals' minor league infield coordinator, will replace Page on an interim basis.
General manager Jim Bowden wouldn't specify why Page is taking time off, or how long he'll be away. But Bowden did say Page is expected to return to the job.
``He's a very important part of our family and organization,'' Bowden said. ``It's very important to us that we give support to all of our employees who have personal matters, and so we're going to support him in every way possible.''
Page did not immediately respond to a message left on his cell phone.
