Uehara was the only "live" (human) pitcher in the game, as pitching machines were used to throw the balance of the innings.
Uehara is at Instructs rehabbing from knee and back issues that have kept him out of game action for about a month.
SS Luis Vázquez (2017 IFA México) made his debut (?) and went 1-2, possibly against a pitching machine as Uehara was the only live pitcher that day. He's a 17 YO 6'2" switch hitter who supposedly/hopefully makes contact and plays defense. He was one of two ranked IFAs by MLB.com signed by the Cubs this period.
There's lots of raw youth and tools down there this year, mostly still carried by the 2015 IFAs.
