Down on the farm - Alan Horne injury update...

If you follow the Yankees farm teams, you will remember that top prospect Alan Horne came down with a strained biceps muscle in his throwing arm a couple of weeks back. The Yankees rested him for a couple of weeks, and yesterday, he threw from a mount for the first time since the injury. Here is the update directly from his father, Bill:
Also, talked with Alan today. He threw the planned work-out at 60'. Said everything went well, said his arm was strong and felt good but he could tell that he still had to stretch it back out carefully until he had the biceps back up to speed.
Hopefully there will be no setbacks and Alan can get right back on the road to the show. With all of the injuries the Yankees have been coming down with lately, I wouldn't be surprised if Alan got his shot sometime in the near future.

Talk about it in the NYYSI Forums!

Him being healthy would be a big boost because we may need him in the pen sooner rather than later.

Just to clarify: he was throwing from flat ground, not on a mound.
