Three more players took the field for the 2022 Cubs, bring the total for the year up to 42. Two made their MLB debuts in game 1 of a doubleheader against the Brewers while a third began his career in game 2.
Pitcher Matt Swarmer started the first game and went five innings. He struck out six while giving up four runs though just one was earned.
Nelson Velazquez saw his first big league action, getting the start in right field. He singled in his first at-bat, which had to be quite a thrill. He popped out in his other two plate appearances.
