Son has been complaining of his back shoulder area being sore mainly right when he stops swinging (taking reps). Sometimes when he throws. After he got done hitting today he thought is was a level 7 out of 10. But it doesn’t prevent him from being able to hit, if that makes sense. Anything to be worried about?

I don't think others should give medical advice here.
Take him to his doctor.
7 out 10 means see an ortho asap.
Look up Teres Major and Minor and see if that is the area. If that’s it he better stop now before that sucker pops. A couple weeks of rehab/treatment can quickly turn into 6 months
Thanks, I just never really heard of a shoulder hurting after swinging. Going to try and get an appointment tomorrow
It’s been happening for about a week now
Go see a doctor.
My son once had shoulder/back pain only when swinging, didn't hurt when throwing or pitching. He went to the doctor, who said it was "only" muscle pain and he could play through it. But, we made sure he was thoroughly checked out before he hit again.
Ok thanks! Going. To get something set up tomorrow
As a note, my son's was not a deltoid, it was behind his shoulder blade, rhomboid or something.
Yeah that could be his too. He said he’s fine now and it has never stopped him from being able to play, either way, going to try and get an appointment tomorrow
