Power Cleans - Pain in the Chest?

I'm currently working on the Starting Strength program and I've found a new pain I can't quite figure out what to do about.

I'd appreciate it if someone can give it a name for me. I'm currently calling it Nancy.

When I do power cleans in the last set or two of (3x5) when my muscular strength begins to wane I am getting a fairly sharp pain in my chest/shoulder tie-in right by the teres minor. Feels like a tendon issue. There is a short term loss of strength but no obvious bruising to the touch afterword.

What tendon runs along here and what's a guy to do about Nancy?
