Apparently looking to replace Derrek Lee at first base with another veteran the Cubs have talked to agent Scott Boras about Carlos Pena, according to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com.

Muskat reports that general manager Jim Hendy met with Boras to “discuss” Pena, but no salary figures were exchanged.

Pena continued to show tons of power and patience this year, smacking 28 homers and drawing 87 walks in 144 games, but he batted just .196 and had a .732 OPS after posting a combined .935 OPS during his first three seasons with the Rays.

In addition to the Cubs’ interest Pena has also been linked heavily to the Nationals.
