Alan Horne returns to the moundBy
Via Chad Jennings, Alan Horne throw a 25-pitch simulate inning today, his first significant action since having a partial torn labrum surgically repaired last year. The Yanks’ number five prospect in 2008 was scheduled to throw in a minor league game, but Mother Nature didn’t cooperate and he instead got his work in with a bullpen session. Afterwards Horne said he felt good and was more consistent with his curveball than he had been in previous sessions. He’s scheduled to pitch two innings in a minor league game on Wednesday.
