THE Bal­ti­more Ori­oles called a halt to a pend­ing deal with free agent pitcher Grant Bal­four from the Oak­land As yes­ter­day over med­i­cal con­cerns. Ori­oles vice-pres­i­dent Dan Duquette said the club ‘‘wasn’t sat­is­fied’’ with the re­sults of the 35-year-old Aus­tralian hurler’s phys­i­cal exam. He didn’t elab­o­rate, but The Bal­ti­more Sun said the is­sue was with Bal­four’s right shoul­der. Bal­four missed all of the 2006 sea­son re­cov­er­ing from a shoul­der surgery the pre­vi­ous year.
