First signed by the Senators before the 1952 season, Pascual would appear in 48 games in his rookie season, posting a 4-7 record with a 4.22 ERA and being credited with 3 saves.

With the original Senators during their last season in Washington, Pascual was 12-8 in 26 games.
Heading northwest as the franchise packed up and headed to Minnesota, Pascual pitched for 6 seasons in Minnesota, most notably going 20-11 in 1962 and 21-9 in 1963. Pascual would see his only post-season action with the Twins, being charged with 1 loss as Minnesota fell to the LA Dodgers in 7 games.
Starting the 1969 season in Washington, Pascual was 2-5 in 14 games, his ERA having ballooned to 6.83 when he was sold to the Cincinnati Reds in early July where he finished the 1969 season.
His career winding down, Pascual would be signed by the LA Dodgers in mid-April of 1970 but was released again in late August.
Pascual would sign with the Cleveland Indians for the 1971 campaign, was sent to the San Diego Padres as part of a conditional deal in late May but was returned to Cleveland just 4 days later. One week later, Pascual would receive his final release.
