Muscle tightness: Assuming that cardiac reasons are ruled out, the pain you may be experiencing may be muscle tightness at the coracoid process or experiencing costochondritis. You should have this evaluated by your pcp to make sure it's not anything more serious.

Shoulder blade: Since rotator cuff years cannot heal on their own without a repair, we can only stabilize our shoulder position through strengthening the shoulder blade muscles. Doing rowing, reverse butterflies, and scapular retractions (pulling your shoulder back with a straight posture) can hold the shoulder more stable, reducing pain.
