There are a whole lot of people inside the organization pulling for Horne's return. There's also a bunch outside the organization in the form of reporters, fans, family, etc. I'm one of them.
[Horne] made another extended spring training start today, pitching 3.2 innings with seven strikeouts and no walks... Horne said he once again felt great.
He also said he doesn't expect to make another extended start, but he's not sure where his next assignment will be. All he's been told is that he will pitch somewhere on Sunday. Could be Tampa, Trenton or Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

From the SWB Yanks Blog comes news on Alan Horne and his progression coming back from an arm injury. Apparently Horne is done pitching in Extended Spring Training games and will throw in the higher affiliates this weekend.
