BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles will not be signing free agent closer Grant Balfour.

Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette says that the club was not satisfied with the results of his physical examination.

''The Orioles were disappointed we couldn't complete a contract with Grant Balfour,'' Duquette said in a Friday conference call.

Baltimore and Balfour came to a reported two-year $15 million agreement with $1 million deferred on Tuesday pending results of the physical. Duquette said the team would not seek to restructure the agreement.

Duquette says the Orioles will ''turn our attention elsewhere for now.''

Duquette declined to say what the specific concerns over Balfour were, but the right-hander had shoulder and elbow operations that kept him out of the major leagues in 2005 and 2006.
