The cup is a foreign object, unlike a glove, so it cannot be used to legally make a play on the ball (like a hat, mask, pocket, etc.). Thus, ball is dead, and batter and other runners receive a 2-base award from the time of pitch for a ball out of play lodged in a foreign object.

I see U1 signaling the "that's nothing" signal -- assumingly on a possible INT of the bullpen guys over there. Would be interesting to see what was signaled once the cup was observed rolling around the field and whether it would have affected any advance by other runners on base.
