MLB acknowledged the mistake but there is simply nothing that can be done to correct it since it was a judgement call. The only post action done was a talking to the umps in how bad they effed up.

I'm guessing it gives the ball more movement, making it harder to hit.

I would have a hard time gripping the ball due to the slippery feel.

It is actually used to help the pitchers grip. Balls are slippery even when they have been rubbed down by the umps. The rosin and sunscreen combo gives the pitchers a tackier feel and can help their command and their pitches

How do the umps miss these things? They could have tell that the ball seems to feel a bit funny.
