A baseball source indicated Tuesday that the Cubs are interested in adding a veteran bat to their Triple-A roster.

The Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday released 29-year-old OF Val Pascucci from their Triple-A affiliate, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs of the International League.

In 25 games with Lehigh Valley, the right-handed batting Pascucci hit .232 with one home run, two doubles and seven RBIs. Pascucci led the club with 18 walks and was second on the team with a .370 on-base percentage.

A 15th-round selection by Montreal in the 1999 draft, Pascucci entered 2008 a career .278 hitter with 146 HR and 548 RBI in seven minor league seasons. He led the Pacific Coast League with 34 home runs with Triple-A Albuquerque in 2007.'s Chuck Hixson contributed to this report.
