PERSONNEL DEPT.

This season, injuries have hurt not just the Nationals, but also their minor league affiliates. One of the organization's most promising pitching prospects, 23-year-old LHP Cory VanAllen, was placed on the disabled list Thursday with a shoulder injury. VanAllen struggled last year at Class A Potomac, but this season he has become a revelation. In 10 games -- five with Potomac, five with AA Harrisburg -- VanAllen has compiled a 6-1 record and a 2.17 ERA. "We'll [have to] shut him down and build him back up," Washington GM Jim Bowden said. No timetable has been set for VanAllen's return.

"I don't think so. We've got way too many games left to hit rock bottom."
