Pain When Free Hanging

I have no history of any joint pain, so I’m left wondering why I can’t do chins or pullups. I had recently been adding mini band pullaparts and face pulls in between accessory work, so that is the only change I’ve made. I can bench, press, and dip without pain, but I get a sharp pain when I try to chin or pullup; more so when my hands are pronated a la the pullup. The other times I can feel the pain is when abducting my arm, such as reaching for something to the side of me or trying to externally rotate, but the weird thing is I play softball and have no pain when throwing. Can anybody help me out with any measures to take - I know nothing about shoulder pain. I’m hoping it’s just some form of inflammation
