I have been doing some BP lately and whenever I try to do a heavy swing, I always get a sharp pain in my upper bicep that lasts for a few days then goes away and then comes back at my next bp session. Should I be worried about this or can it be fixed with just a better batting form? I’ve noticed that it doesn’t hurt as much when I let go of the bat with one hand after making contact. I get the pain where my upper bicep and shoulder meet. Thank you.
Strongly urge you see a sports medicine specialist. Let us know where you are from and I’m quite certain someone on the boards can at least give you a starting point.
I agree with Senna. Probably going to need some PT and ease up on the curls for a while.

When I don’t feel any pain should I be doing any strengthening workouts for my arms for prevention?
I'm no PT, but if anything I'd do light weight or just skip biceps for a while. For years I was using 45's for bicep curls. Then one day my arm was sore and it kept coming back every time I worked out. I don't know if it was the curls or pullups (I stopped those completely). I started curling with 25's and haven't felt pain since.
If you are feeling pain something is probably inflamed and heavy weights will not help. I'd still take Senna's advice and see a professional. If there is a tear you will need some type of therapy and putting it off will just make it worse.
