Grant Balfour: “I am healthy”

The Orioles canceled their two-year agreement with Grant Balfour after discovering something bothersome during the free agent right-hander’s pre-signing physical. Balfour has publicly lashed out at the Baltimore front office for the way things were handled -- even threatening to file an official grievance -- and he appeared Sunday morning on MLB Network Radio to further express his frustration.

Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM shared some snippets of that interview on Twitter:

Grant Balfour - first reaction was “Disappointed, I had hoped to help the O’s to go to the WS”

Balfour “I haven’t had a DL stint in 8 years and 2 doctors who said I was healthy”

— Jim Duquette (@Jim_Duquette) December 22, 2013

Balfour “4 teams are interested in my services and I have at least 1 offer on the table.” @MLBNetworkRadio

Balfour - “I don’t have to prove that I’m healthy , I am healthy… “

Balfour, 35, posted a 2.35 ERA (154 ERA+) in his three years with Oakland while tallying 64 saves.
