O's Balfour Deal Nixed
In a weird turn of events the Orioles deal with Grant Balfour fell through due to concerns over his physical. The Orioles are concerned about Balfour's shoulder, while Balfour claims he is 100% healthy. Whatever the case is, the concern was enough for the Orioles to call off the $15 million deal that was offered and agreed to earlier in the week.
With Balfour's deal falling through, the Orioles are in need of a closer. Reports have suggested that they have reached out to former Tampa Bay closer Fernando Rodney to fill the void.
