Horne out a week with 'strained biceps muscle'

Here's some good news from Tyler Kepner regarding Alan Horne and the injury he sustained last night:

Horne had a magnetic resonance imaging exam and was found to have a strained biceps muscle. He will report to Tampa and be shut down for a week, but the Yankees are not concerned about long-term damage to Horne, who had reconstructive elbow surgery in college.

"It’s not a rotator cuff, not a labrum, not a medial collateral ligament – it’s none of the stuff that concerns you as a long-term issue," said Mark Newman, the senior vice president for player personnel. "It’s a pulled muscle – not connective tissue, not the stuff that causes problems."
