Balfour originally agreed to a deal with the Baltimore Orioles, but it was never completed due to concerns about his knee and wrist, but Balfour denied their concerns. The Rays appear to agree with Balfour and are about to land an All-Star caliber reliever.
Last season with the Oakland Athletics, the 36-year-old Balfour went 1-3 with a 2.59 ERA and a 72/27 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
